The Center for Teaching Excellence regularly hosts programs and events to inspire, support, and connect instructors of all levels at Boston College.
Now that we have returned to campus, here are the COVID protocols you can expect to experience at an in-person CTE workshop:
- Sanitation: All surfaces will be wiped down between events.
- Masks: We will be following BC's masking policies (you can find up-to-date guidance on the BC Forward webpage); we will have masks available at the front desk.
- Remote participation: In order to accommodate members of our community, some workshops may include remote participants.
Don't hesitate to reach out to email@example.com with any questions.
