Good evening participants,

As you begin the final day in your M-W morning workshop, take a moment to think about your goals at the beginning of the workshop and the goals presented by workshop leaders. Day three is a great time to work together synthesizing efforts while taking away tangible resources, tools, and ideas to improve teaching and learning.

Meet us at 4:10pm for our official Rendezvous group photo (right after the afternoon mini-workshops and before Wednesday's Poster Session) on the steps in front of the Student Union. See map; between #25 and #26. Don't miss it!
