PRESTO LITE (5 week webinar series)

DateJuly 8, 2020
Time2:00 - 3:00 pm
DescriptionJoin us for a 5 week "lighter" version of our PRESTO Course (Preparing Researchers, Educators, & Scholars for Teaching Online) and share Baylor's light in the online teaching environment!  Each week we will have an hour-long synchronous session through Webex.  To get the most out of the class, you will then need to spend time independently working on practice projects.  

***  If you register for PRESTO Lite, you are committing to ALL FIVE weeks on Wednesdays @ 2 -  please only register if you want to take the whole series.  ***

We normally limit our PRESTO Lite cohorts to 10 faculty members so although we are opening up the sessions to allow more people to attend as observers during this unique time, we will only be able to offer interactive feedback on projects for the first 10 people who email ( and indicate that you want to be in the official cohort and are committed to attending all 5 sessions and submitting one or more projects for feedback from the instructional design team.  By doing so you will earn a certificate.

A link to join our session will be sent out via email to you closer to the workshop date.
