How to Connect With Mentors

Most weeks during the fall semester, one of these seven faculty mentors will be available during virtual drop-in hours, offering peer-to-peer advice to other instructors on a wide range of topics related to remote teaching and learning. You can connect with that mentor during this time, but you can also contact any mentor at any time by emailing them to schedule a session. If they do not have availability, a mentor can reach out to other mentors on your behalf for common time.
