Teacher Workshops


DWR teachers represent an active and productive professional community. Faculty present internal workshops and lectures throughout the year, including at orientation sessions, regular CompTalk presentations, reading groups, and cross-campus events. On this page, we showcase the workshop materials that teacher presenters have shared. Please contact the workshop leader directly if you have any questions.
