Hi, everyone,

ReFocus Online begins June 15th and we can’t wait to bring everyone together to talk about online teaching. Whether utilizing the website resources, participating in interactive workshops, or joining the faculty learning community about creating compelling courses, there are several ways to reflect on our teaching practices and work in community this summer.

Today, the Getting Started page has opened on the  ReFocus Online website. There, you will find ways to prepare for summer programs and dates for all interactive workshops and Session 1 question & answer sessions. Please take a look and mark your calendars to join us!

Registration for the Week 1 Interactive Workshop will begin on Monday, June 8th. Please watch your UMW email on June 8th for ‘ReFocus Online News’ to learn about Week 1 Interactive Workshop sessions and how to register.

Our team continues to plan for what promises to be a busy summer. We appreciate your patience as we are ramping up for Week 1. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out. In the meantime, keep your eyes on your email June 8th and we’ll see you soon!
