Dear faculty colleagues,
The PACT (Provost’s Academic COVID-19 Taskforce) sub-committee on best practices, ATLE, and the Provost Office is hosting a series of casual conversations about teaching in the time of COVID-19, located in the Blackboard “Faculty Helping Faculty” Organization (via Collaborate Ultra).
The second “Teaching in the TIme of COVID” conversation hour will be Wednesday, June 24th, at 4pm.
- The topic is apps and extensions
- If you have an app or extension to recommend, we ask that you give a 60-second elevator-pitch style description of it to start off the conversation (this is optional). This format will allow us to hear about many tools quickly, and then have follow-up questions, comparisons, and general discussion.
Chairs/directors: please make sure to share this with any part-time faculty or GTAs who will be teaching in the fall.
There are 2 ways to join the conversation in the “Faculty Helping Faculty Course Room” session via Collaborate Ultra:

Sessions will be recorded and made available to those who cannot attend, along with written notes.
