Summer 2021 Faculty Workshop Schedule

The overall theme for this summer’s series is “supporting faculty course planning and early-semester teaching strategies.” As with our previous PELT workshops, our aim is to provide peer-led, relevant, just-in-time professional development opportunities for UML faculty.  The informal, hour-long sessions are developed to address faculty in any discipline, and questions and discussion are encouraged during the session and on the Teaching Excellence listserv after the session. The workshops will be recorded and posted for those who cannot attend live. We want everyone to have a great return to campus, and hope that these CELT offerings will assist!

No Pre-Pregistration Required! One link for all meetings!
