Remote Instruction Support Workshops

Remote Instruction Support Check-Ins

Would you like to see quick demos of tools/strategies? Would you like to share/discuss your experiences with what is/isn't working with colleagues and brainstorm?

These sessions are a combination of short demonstrations of tools or activities that are tied to the topic, but also opportunities for you to share what has and hasn't been working, discuss how you are applying what you learned through the workshops you have already attended, etc.
