Testimonials About ODR Courses Taught by Colin Rule

Colin is clearly a leading light in the field, but he is down to earth, approachable, and interested in every student’s perspective. I cannot praise his teaching style highly enough.



It’s not often one takes a course which is simultaneously (1) relevant to everyday practice, (2) highly informative about the state of the art of an issue, (3) thought-provoking, and (4) entertaining. This class met all four of those elements.

Colin Rule understands the theory in detail, but also has the real-world experience and the teaching skills to give the lessons credibility and to make complex material digestible.

 Colin does an amazing job of discussing best practices and being aware within the ODR space.


Colin Rule is one of the best instructors I’ve had, and I’ve had MANY instructors over the years.

Colin is a very engaging speaker and an enthusiastic listener – a great person to have a conversation with.

This is one of the best courses I have ever taken. It was inspirational.
