Professor Lisa Didier taught at the College of Lake County, IL for 20 years before taking her classroom to sea as guest ‘enrichment’ lecturer aboard 80 cruises for the Celebrity, Holland America, Azamara and Princes cruise lines.
Since moving to Florida 4 years ago, Professor Didier began using her background as a teacher, world traveler, nationally and internationally published writer and historical researcher to create informative and entertaining programs that focus on history, famous historical figures, or the culture, flora & fauna, food and crafts of countries all over the world. She has presented these programs for adult students at Rollins College, the Villages Life Long Learning, and Terra Vista’s series of Lunch and Learn programs.
Every program is presented in PowerPoint format and contains more than 70 slides with pictures, maps, graphs and sometimes music. After the program, Professor Didier hangs around to answer any questions and to interact with her favorite kind of people, the intellectually curious.
