Upcoming CTAL Events:
Our next First Friday Roundtable is on May 5, 3:30-5:00pm in Gore 208. The session will be an “unconference” where attendees will set the agenda and address the issues that interest them most. Participants in the May 5 unconference may continue with that theme or bring in new teaching topics that they would like to discuss and explore. New topics from the unconference will influence the programming for next year’s First Friday Roundtable series. You can register for the Roundtable here.
