Wally Cordes Teaching and Faculty Support Center to Host Discussion with Provost Coleman
Provost Jim Coleman will lead a discussion on "Faculty Experiences in Remote Instruction: What Worked, What Didn't, and Lessons Learned" from noon to 12:45 p.m. Thursday, April 23. Join Provost Coleman to discuss your experiences in the switch to remote teaching. Share your successes, difficulties encountered, and join the dialogue about how the university can better support your efforts.
Faculty can participate in this session by logging on to Blackboard (learn.uark.edu).
