Dear 3CSN Wayfinding Community,

We hope you are doing well. We are glad to report that our Design Lab Series is in full swing. If you or your colleagues were unable to participate this time around, please know that the 3CSN Design labs will be repeated in the fall. Registration for those will be announced soon.

Looking for a one-hour or ninety-minute session? We have some great “learning briefs” (including Learn and Practice, peer review, and classic webinar-style sessions) coming up this week. We are particularly excited that the Learning Assistance Hour, facilitated by 3CSN Coordinator Crystal Kiekel and Los Angeles Pierce College tutors, will focus on Kahoot and Quizlet this week.
