Faculty Prep Week runs August 11-15
Stop by the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Technology (CTLT) and let us help you prepare for the fall semester. Our specialists will be on hand at our facility for walk-in workshops and consultations, all designed to help you get ready to teach! Unlike many of our other technology courses, Faculty Prep Week courses do not require registration. Simply walk in, sit down at a computer, and start learning! We recommend that you plan to arrive a few minutes early. Parking is limited around our building, so please consider walking.
