ATS Symposium

Theme:  The Post-AMI Campus

Date: Friday, July 29, 2022 
Location:  Liberal Arts 4 Bldg., Room 120 [map] & Zoom
Format:  HyFlex; attend in-person or online
Time: 8:30am-12:30pm.

Faculty, staff, and students are invited to this special event hosted by Academic Technology Services (ATS).

Join us for a series of presentations and discussions to look ahead at our post-AMI (alternative modes of instruction) campus and return to in-person classes. After our experience of remote teaching, learning and working, what are our needs and expectations?  What can we anticipate and how can we best prepare for the upcoming year? 

Topics to be discussed range from best practices and perspectives from faculty, staff, and students as they share and reflect on the impact that AMI had on them and what the new normal may look like in the next academic year.
