NDLW 2021: The Future of e-Learning at UMBC
National Distance Learning Week 2021 Lunchtime Series
In early November, UMBC celebrates National Distance Learning Week (NDLW) with a series of lunchtime conversations. Our theme, Life in a Hybrid World - Learning How to Flex, celebrates all the successes and challenges our campus community has experienced as we continue to adapt, teach, and learn together during the pandemic.
Join us on Friday, November 12th from 12 PM-1:00 PM for a lunchtime panel discussion on what e-Learning may look like at UMBC moving forward.
