CPL and Faculty Engagement: C-PLAN May 19 professional development opportunity!

Ask C-PLAN’s bimonthly webinar is happening Wednesday, May 19, 2021 at 2:00 p.m. Central Time.

We invite you to come meet with us and four faculty panelists to discuss CPL and faculty engagement. The panelists will converse about how and why they began working on the development of CPL programs and services, including the creation of assessment options. Panelists also will discuss the opportunities and challenges regarding supports, benefits, and incentives for doing this work. Through an interactive discussion, panelists and participants will identify ways in which programs, campuses, and Minnesota State can advance increased engagement and implementation.

After registering, add the event to your calendar. Look for Outlook invitation confirmation in your Focused or Other inbox.
