Hey All!

Cengage Learning is hosting free e-Seminars throughout Spring 2012. Please see the attached calendar for topics covered, dates, and registration links for each of the faculty development e-Seminars. The faculty development e-Seminars will address the major issues and challenges that faculty encounter in the Precalculus and College Algebra courses and will provide various tips, strategies and resources to help meet those demands. Each session will be led by one of our authors or TeamUP Consultants. In total, we will offer 6, 45-60 minutes sessions throughout the spring semester.

All of the seminars are easily accessible online; all that is required to participate is a computer with internet access and a telephone. Once someone registers for a seminar, they are emailed a link, telephone number, and passcode. When the seminar begins, the ability to watch and listen is just a click and a phone call away. Registration for any of the online seminars is completely free and is open to everyone. These faculty development sessions are a great opportunity for faculty to brush up on various topics and ask questions of our authors and TeamUP Consultants.
