Greetings from the Center for Teaching & Learning.

I hope you had a restful and rejuvenating break!

If you haven't yet had a chance, I would like to encourage you to subscribe to the Teaching Professor. This is a nationally recognized, monthly newsletter packed with useful information. (Don't take my word for it!) Our subscription includes archived editions going back to 2004 as well as a very useful search function. Take a look! And if you find something particularly helpful, please let me know.

I hope you have a productive 2nd half of winter term.
