IMPORTANT NOTICE for the New Faculty Development Workshop 2020

Due to the current social distancing restrictions, recent health announcements for Illinois, and the delay in the opening of universities due to the COVID19 pandemic, APTE has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 New Faculty Development Workshop scheduled for July 16-19, 2020. While we know this is disappointing, we hope you will understand the steps were are taking to help keep our attendees safe. Plans are underway to schedule the 2021 New Faculty Workshop and the date will be announced soon.
