Educational Seminars for Students, Faculty, and Staff
Dr. Greenberg has developed and taught the “Mind Tools” seminars since 2010. These seminars show attendees how to install and use information mapping software that serves as a support and extension of your mind and as an information management tool to support all personal and professional projects.
People most value the ability to support memory, organize projects and activities and reduce the daily stress of information overload.
Seminars are scheduled for 3 hour sessions but individuals can request that training to be divided into smaller sessions and also delivered 1 on 1 in-office for busy professionals.
All required computer programs are free of charge, some are open source. Quick reference materials and take home workbooks are also provided with each seminar. You will need your laptop, a notebook, a pen, and an open mind. Dr. Greenberg offers three standard seminars as shown below.

What is missing from current education?
Having taught college and university courses for over 10 years, it is clear that no course, program, or institution is teaching people how to systematically work with their mind’s output. Is the entire field of education missing the idea that, beyond having thoughts, we ought to capture and process them as if we were panning for gold…and then act upon them with passion and persistence?
I believe the answer is yes, so in 2010 I created a seminar series that shows people how to easily and rapidly capture, organize, and expand upon any idea a person has. This is important to me and to most people I speak with because the way we learn, create, and take action has a huge impact on our communities and ourselves.
Think about all of the new business activities, inventions, and artistic creations we see each day. What if you can add to your own potential for these achievements using free tools and simple changes to daily habits? These are some of the questions posed in our seminars in which trainees will begin building your own lifetime learning, idea, and project/program management systems.
