The Teaching Center has purchased an institutional license to attend the ninth annual virtual conference, Transforming the Teaching & Learning Environment, hosted by the University of Idaho. For 10 weekdays starting Monday, Feb. 12, there will be 60 one-hour live and interactive sessions on topics like gamification, mobile learning, flipped classrooms and emerging technologies. This is a great way to engage with education professionals from all over the world.

The guidelines for the award and the application form are available on the Provost's Award for Diversity in the Curriculum web page, and the deadline for applications is October 18, 2019.
