WTI Blackboard page:

Please check out the Winter Teaching Institute 2021 page on The TCC Blackboard prior to tomorrow’s sessions. To access the page from the link, you will need to be logged into Blackboard.  You will find many additional resources, a discussion board, and handouts for the sessions.  I would also like to draw your attention to two welcome videos available on Blackboard:

  1. The first is a welcome video from Kate Douglas, Interim President welcoming attendees to the Winter Teaching Institute.
  2. The second video is from Amy Burtner, Acting TCC Coordinator, delivering some opening remarks to recognize that this is a Winter Teaching Institute unlike all others we’ve hosted .  A transcript of Amy’s statement is attached.
