I wanted to write a thank you for providing this great series of workshops at such an opportune time: I found the presentations thoughtful, informative, and practical, especially with the inclusion of real examples from instructors in different disciplines, and I appreciated how the presenters arranged for time for questions and exchange of ideas in breakout rooms afterward.

Many thanks again for organizing and facilitating the new DLI workshops this summer too! I can already see their positive influence on my current teaching and teacher training activities (especially in the current blended/hybrid regime of teaching). And, of course, certain things which we learned and discussed during those workshops will continue to prove useful for giving more informative and interesting answers to some teaching-related questions. Merci!
