August 18-19 Professional Development Event  Sponsored by CTL

The CTL sponsored its first fall kickoff professional development day for faculty and other NMU instructors on Monday, August 18. The event included a full schedule of programming, with a wide variety of sessions facilitated by CTL staff, faculty members, and other members of the NMU community. The program grew beyond one day, so we also had a few sessions the morning of Tuesday, August 19. This event was  one of the first opportunities to see the new Jamrich Hall in action, with all sessions taking place in Jamrich learning spaces.

There were also several well-attended building tours

Check out the full program if you're interested in what the event included. We're catching up after a busy first week, but we plan to publish slides and handouts from the sessions soon!
