Faculty Resources for Moving Online

 

Hello Faculty and Adjunct Instructors,

 

We hope your online teaching preparation is going well.  We have added additional trainings for this coming week on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  All sessions are on the same registration link.  If you have signed up previously, no need to register for those sessions again, but you do have to register for new additional sessions.  There will be Open bb Office Hours from 8am-4pm Monday – Friday this week in Huber 203, the Faculty Sandbox.  We are also putting together a Bb Mentoring Group to assist instructors with their needs. Watch for an update soon.
