Working with graduate students online? Want to gain new ideas, share your innovations, and vent your frustrations? Join the Distance Learning Section Discussion Group’s Spring Forum! We’ll start with an experienced keynote speaker, Johanna Tunon (see bio below), who will talk about trends and changes in services to graduate students. We’ll then have four breakout sessions – 15 minute moderated chat discussions – where we’ll introduce a topic and then invite YOU to ask questions, talk about what you’re doing, and brainstorm how to better serve our graduate students. Can’t come for the whole thing? Join us for the parts that you can…or just for what interests you!
