What's New in Teaching & Learning?

WE have a new streamlined process for training session registration
We've recently combined the CTL and Library training offerings onto one calendar for your convenience. You can now simply click on the LibCal calendar link provided in the UCM Daily each Monday, or on the trainng titles provided in the Friday emails to go directly to the descriptions and registration links. We hope this eliminates some extra steps in planning your professional development and hope the calendar view makes it easier to see how the trainings fit into your week!
