Thursday, August 19

From the 16th-18th, TLT will release 4-6 pre-recorded videos each day on the TLS website for you to view asynchronously. These presentations will feature TWU faculty sharing ideas to use in the classroom and will introduce programs in which you may wish to participate.

On August 19th, TLT will host live, in-person presentations in the new Hubbard Hall Auditorium (HH 1410), including continental breakfast and boxed lunch. There will be plenty of room for you to socially distance as you wish. For our academic community in Dallas in Houston, these live presentations will also be live-streamed.

Because it is difficult to estimate turnout for the in-person event, we kindly ask that if you plan on attending the live/in-person TLS presentations on 8/19, to please sign-up on our TLS Registration page by Thursday, August 5th at noon so that we may properly account for food and beverages.

For more information about this year's event, including a full list of presentations, please visit the 2021 Teaching and Learning Symposium website.
