Fall Quarter Starts Next Week!

Welcome back to campus for those starting the fall quarter next week! As you prepare and teach your fall classes, the Office of Teaching and Learning and IT have tips and friendly reminders to share. Don’t forget that you can also reach out to us with questions or schedule a consultation by contacting OTL staff directly or booking 1:1 time with the OTL Instructional Designers.

The OTL will be available for both in-person and virtual support Monday through Thursday. On Fridays, all support requests and consultations will be held completely virtually.
