The Center for Teaching Excellence is hosting a series of informal workshops and information sharing sessions throughout the summer. Sessions are held twice a week, Tuesday and Thursday afternoons at 3:00 PM.  Please suggest a topic that you would like to share with your colleagues – it could be on an approach that you have used successfully in the classroom, or developed to use during our remote teaching challenge. Sessions will be on ZOOM, and materials are posted online as available.
