Happy New Year! Let's hope it's a good one...

We have an exciting series of roundtable discussions on a variety of topics coming up for the spring. These events take place live via Zoom and are recorded for putting on our YouTube channel.

My Feb. 17th SLiThEr will be about using oral exams through Zoom in General Chemistry and how I scaffolded the learning to enhance student success.

Thanks for the SLiThEr schedule, everyone!  I can make the Thursday ones and look forward to them.  (And I can watch the Wed ones on youtube.)
