CTE Grading Break Zoom Faculty Get-Together

CTE Grading Break Zoom Faculty Get-Together

Wednesday, May 13 | 12:00 – 1:00pm

RSVP and Zoom Link »

For the past several years, CTE has hosted a grading retreat at the end of each semester to provide fuel and motivation for the sometimes onerous task of grading. After all, there's nothing quite like shared meals, bottomless pots of coffee, and the camaraderie of fellow graders to help power through the end-of-semester grading ritual!This semester, we can't gather in person for meals and group grading. But we can still enjoy the community of our awesome faculty colleagues by taking a grading break together. Please join CTE on Wednesday, May 13 from noon to 1:00 p.m. for a BYOL (bring your own lunch) grading break. We'll host a main room for folks to visit and chat with one another, as well as three themed "breakout rooms" for faculty to share observations and thoughts about teaching-related issues that have emerged in this semester's distance-learning environment.Stay for as little or as long as you'd like. Lurkers welcome! RSVPs appreciated but not required.
