<aside> 💡 CoVid19 is upon us, and with semesters being pushed back and classes going online (for the first time in many cases), TML wants to support instructors make the most of this unique opportunity.


🏛️ Drop-in Sessions

TML is hosting a series of online drop-in sessions this week. These informal sessions are a chance for instructors to talk with each other and find out what other people are doing (especially if your university or employer has thrust the prospect of online classes upon you with little to no notice). This isn't a course (or a crash course), but an opportunity to talk, share ideas and most importantly connect with instructors in the same position.

🕕 Dates & Times
