Letter from the Director
Dear Colleagues of the UW Oshkosh Teaching Community,

Previous participants proclaim practical assistance, interesting dialogues and valuable connections with colleagues.

You have received a print "Menu" describing these events and programs in your campus mailbox, and each Thursday you will receive this e-mail newsletter with up-to-date teaching resources and services. Watch for the subject line: CETL Lessons. For a full listing of our Fall schedule, please check the CETL website.

Wishing us all a wonderful year of teaching and learning,
Lori Carrell, CETL Director
