Faculty Workshops

December 21, 2010 | | Leave a Comment

Each semester the Teaching and Learning Center offers a number of scheduled workshops. Watch your faculty mailbox for our announcement at the start of each regular academic term, or ask at your departmental office for a copy.

In addition, TLC will conduct custom workshops for faculty groups of five to fifteen. We are open to providing training on any topic, as long as we have the expertise to teach it. Training must be scheduled in advance to ensure that lab space is available. Please contact the TLC office to coordinate custom training for your faculty group.
