Faculty Learning Community to the Rescue

Wednesday, August 18, 2021 at 11:00 AM–11:20 AM CDT
Session Description

A faculty learning community working toward the same goal of teaching students how to own and use their own brains has given us a craving to know more, do more and teach others.  This sounds like a perfect recipe for success.  Come join us to learn how we started, the benefits, and our challenges.
