Introducing FacultyConnect

Looking for a place to connect with colleagues and discuss teaching in the age of Zoom? Join CEE for FacultyConnect: a new series of informal and lively conversations about evidence-based practices in online and remote teaching. Conversations will revolve around a specific online/remote teaching topic each week, giving you the chance to reflect on your course and share your experiences with teaching this quarter. Each session a faculty guest will share their strategies and experiences with the topic as well (guest list is below). Meetings will be facilitated by a CEE specialist and are designed for remote teaching topics.
