CRLT understands that the pandemic has made managing the demands of both family care and work responsibilities especially challenging. For many of us that means needing to step away from a Zoom meeting or having children appear on camera when they need to talk to us during a meeting. We understand that this is a part of worklife during the pandemic, and we want to reassure you that we understand and that this should not be a barrier to your participation in our events.
CRLT is continuing to host virtual open office hours Monday-Friday from 9:00-11:00am to answer your questions on remote teaching. You can find more information on our open office hours webpage.
