What a semester Spring 2020 turned out to be! The rapid move to remote teaching in
response to the COVID-19 pandemic shelter-in-place orders presented challenges, opportunities,
and learning experiences to all. The CTTL team has been on the ground and over the
ethernet supporting our community in the transition to online teaching and learning.
In the summer release of our newsletter, Impact. Innovate. Inspire., we share tips, resources, and testimonials from campus colleagues about delivering
online instruction as well as considerations and guidance for Fall 2020 instruction.
