This spring we will have a Regular and Effective Contact in Online Courses series and an Accessibility in Online Courses series. Every Friday, we will have a guest speaker. This will be an open forum where some of our most experienced online faculty open up their courses and talk to us about what works for them. There will be plenty of time for questions and answers. Some of the presentations may be hands-on; other presentations will be more conversational. We will meet in the DE Training Room, Library Basement 10, on East Campus, starting at 1:00 p.m. Light refreshments will be served. Feel free to bring a laptop.
