Professional development events during the 2014-2015 Academic Year

It is never to early to be thinking about how you will grow and learn this academic year. Sometimes we are so wrapped up in the start of classes that we forget to make plans to attend on campus events or submit proposals and attend conferences in the region. Here is a handy list of excellent professional development events for you to mark on your calendar. Money is often available to help defray costs of travel and registration. These events are also on the Teaching and Learning schedule.
