Dear 3CSN Wayfinding Community,

We hope you are continuing to take care of yourselves and that you are staying connected.

To further our work together, we are offering several free four-part Design Labs beginning in July. These labs will provide an opportunity to delve more deeply into course and program design work as we prepare for fall semester. Professional learning badges will be awarded for completion and may be used for flex credit (check with your campus for eligibility). Read more about these sessions and register below! Each registration covers all four parts.
