Welcome to September with all of its celebrations, transitions, and reflections!!
Our AMATYC conference is earlier than usual this year 10/28 - 10/31 - just SEVEN weeks away! Have you had a chance to register? Check out the conference home page
for a wealth of information, including masking information and the conference mini-program. There is also an online element to this year's conference, including the Delegate Assembly in November.
Exciting conference notes:
- kudos to the ITLC subcommittee for their work incorporating feedback from our two open forums on the Position Statement for Proctored Assessments for Courses Taught at a Distance as it goes before the Delegate Assembly (virtually) this November!
- On Thursday 10/28, ITLC is hosting a Themed Session on Assessment at the conference! I'm excited to hear our presenters and am looking forward to continued conversations after the session - it's a subject under much discussion and scrutiny.
- Our ITLC meeting is set for Saturday, 10/30 at 1:05 pm (the committee meetings are at different times to allow people to attend multiple meetings).
- One of our biggest and most exciting events is Ignite 2021! Join us on Friday night from 6 - 8 pm for another fast paced and fun event! Have you considered presenting? It's a great way to share a new idea or some research - contact Eddie Tchertchian if you're interested in presenting!!
Have you seen the IMPACT Live!

Finally, I'm cohosting a faculty meet-up tomorrow 9/9
