Introducing: OEDM Monthly Lunch & Learn!
We will be offering monthly lunch & learns on new instructional tools, pedagogical concepts, and other items related to innovative instruction.

It will take place in RGL 101 and boxed lunches will be provided afterward.
All faculty and TAs are invited!

Our first installment, on Thursday, September 30th, 12:00 - 1:00 PM, will focus on the Blackboard tool, Ally. Ally (introductory video here) is an important way to gauge the accessibility of your Blackboard course and learning materials, making sure that all learners have the opportunity to access knowledge.

Masks and Trojan Check are required for entry.
Please use this sign-up form to RSVP no later than Thursday, September 23!
