    The CCLM Board of Directors has planned a series of fall – winter online sessions addressing issues of concern to our membership based on recent survey results.

The monthly topics include: 

    November: The effective use of technology in supporting student learning.

    Format: Panel Discussion followed by Q&A/Discussion. Further details to come.

    January: Making Adjustments to the Curriculum
