January - Week 1

Hello Everyone-
The spring semester will soon be here, so please call or stop by this week if you need assistance with anything related to your preparations and planning. Regular workshop will start up again next week, but it’s not too late to let us know about topics you’d like to see addressed in spring professional development programming. Just reply to this email to make a suggestion.

As you know, you must document students’ academic activity in all classes in WebCourses@UCF during the first week of each semester. Please include an initial deadline of Friday, January 16, for that activity in your spring 2015 classes. If you have questions about how to implement this process in your course, please contact our office or the Center for Distributed Learning for assistance. For detailed instructions, a helpful timeline, and other important information, please refer to: http://teach.ucf.edu/financialaid.

Happy New Year !
