PRESTO Lite (5 Week Webinar Series!)

PRESTO Lite (5 Week Webinar Series!)

Join us for a 5 week "lighter" version of our PRESTO Course (Preparing Researchers, Educators, & Scholars for Teaching Online) and share Baylor's light in the online teaching environment!  Each week we will have an hour-long synchronous session through Webex.  To get the most out of the class, you will then need to spend time independently working on practice projects.  Feedback & letters of completion will be provided.

***  If you register for PRESTO Lite, you are committing to ALL FIVE weeks on Tuesdays @ 2 - we are limiting the cohort to 10 faculty members so we ask you to please only register if you want to take the whole series.  Grad students are not eligible for this series. ***
