January 08, 2020  / Melissa Rizzuto 

Welcome Back Spring 2020

Thank you for visiting the Digital Learning blog. We recently redesigned our website and this blog as part of our transition from e-Learning to the Department of Digital Learning. We hope you will visit often and consider contributing as an author for our blog in the future. You can expect more new blog posts in 2020 as our department plans to focus on sharing more information relevant to your digital teaching and instruction, including exploring technology features, applying research/theory to practice, and highlighting examples of high quality instruction and course design.

We also want to share a few reminders and highlights from 2019 as the semester gets underway.
