We have now been working from home for several weeks and have been hectically changing the way we teach, collaborate, and work. For many, there are additional complications as entire households are working and/or learning from home. According to Google, the trending search term is "bandana mask with hair ties," which was up 4,550% last week. 

This issue combines useful recourses (TEFLON and TLC) with a faculty member's unique take on three things that help, an appeal to complete Undergrad You (complete with vintage photos) and diversions.  We hope you enjoy FAN, issue 2. 

-The Faculty Affairs Team 

TEFLON, or Testing and Exams for Learning Online Now, is a new Canvas tool designed to help faculty learn more about online testing.
