Brown Bag: Weatherproof Your Course
12–1 p.m. Friday, November 14

The lousy weather (thank you, polar vortex!) left many teachers on campus scrambling to catch up after classes were cancelled. Join us for a brainstorming session on the best ways to be proactive instead of reactive to weather-related closures and maintain momentum in class, even during difficult times. Explore things you can do now to prepare for the new semester in January. A light snack will be provided, but bring your lunch, too. No registration is necessary.
