Teaching Workshops for Illinois Tech Instructors

Lewis College of Human Sciences will be hosting a series of three teaching workshops during the spring semester. Each workshop will have a specific theme, but there will be time for an open discussion about general teaching issues and concerns at every meeting. All Illinois Tech instructors are welcome to attend.
