Face-to-Face Session Successful on Feburary 6, 2014...the rest of the course is Online!

One of the requirements of participating in the BLiC learning opportunity is that all participants attend one (1) face-to-face session with others also enrolled. While the course began BEFORE the face-to-face session, meeting in person for one 2 1/2 hour session gave all involved an opportunity to meet, greet and get to know each other even better as the sharing continues through the spring of 2014.

Additional opportunities for participation in this training will be offered again during the Fall, 2014. For more information contact Technology and Media Services.
