Resources for Faculty & Staff
W&L prides itself on the quality of its faculty-student interactions. Very often, that means face-to-face interactions. Unfortunately, the present moment requires us to adapt to a variety of different modes of instruction. Here are a variety of resources for faculty in all fields.

For those of you who have the energy to keep reading, I'm going to try and keep this light: first, a couple of upcoming events and opportunities. Then, some resources for leisurely and/or recovery reading. Take care, all Paul ...
Consultations and Observations
We all pride ourselves on our teaching, but that doesn’t mean it’s always easy.
