Save the Date: CTL Back to School Workshops August 24 and 25

submitted by

To kick off the new academic year, CTL is again hosting the Back-to-School Workshops on Wednesday, August 24th and Thursday, August 25th from 9:00am to 3:30pm each day. Workshops and sessions will be held in Hagfors with the final schedule published in mid-August. These Back-to-School workshops are open to and welcome all Augsburg faculty and staff, though they will be primarily focused on teaching.

The goal of these Back-to-School workshops is to focus on “just-in-time” topics that can be immediately put to use in your upcoming Fall courses as well as serving as a social gathering of colleagues to kick off the year.. If you have a concept or teaching strategy/tool that you would like to offer to others by offering a 1 hour workshop or session, please fill out the short form below with your idea no later than August 12th.

If you have any questions or need accommodations for this event, please contact University Events ( or CTL (

About this event
Are you a former speech and debate competitor? Or perhaps you always wished you had the chance? Come hear about the MN Urban Debate League, a program of Augsburg University that provides academic competitive debate programming for over 1,000 students in the Twin Cities metro area and how you can get involved.
