Coronavirus Update

The November Tools for Teaching workshop is still on!

We are hoping that the threat of the COVID-19 will have subsided enough by the fall for us to proceed as planned. However, we know that there is a strong possibility that we may have to replace this workshop with a webinar or offer alternative dates later in the year. We will update this page when necessary and any changes to the workshop will be made with your travel plans in mind.

If you are a participant and have any questions,
