A reminder that while we are in COVID exile, there are two easy ways to find out what information sessions are available through the Division of Teaching and Learning:

During the spring and fall semesters, Associate Provost Dennis Slavin sends a weekly calendar to all members of the Baruch faculty through your Baruch email. If you prefer not to retrieve Baruch email, you can channel Baruch email to another account by following the instructions on the Baruch College Technology Center’s website for setting up a Virtual Private Network (VPN).

The Center for Teaching and Learning posts its weekly calendar at the bottom of its landing page.
Descriptions and Registration materials for all workshops are on the website.
