First HRER On line Faculty Development Workshop

On Sunday, June 22, twenty five of our on line instructors got together at the Atherton Hotel in town to discuss on line teaching techniques. Instructors from both our undergraduate and graduate programs attended, with many traveling long distances (California, Florida and even Denmark!) to attend. This was the first of what we hope will be an annual faculty workshop where our faculty can learn some new teaching techniques, exchange best practices and just have the opportunity to "talk shop" with other members of our geographically diverse teaching staff.
