Happening every 3rd Friday of the month, the monthly Learning and Technology webinar series features faculty, librarians, and learning professionals from around the UNC system. Presenters share innovative pedagogical approaches, best practices using learning technologies, and valuable digital resources. This program provides an opportunity to engage with colleagues across the system and foster meaningful conversations around timely topics.

Each webinar shares relevant updates from the System Office, best practices found across the System, an outside speaker, insights into new technologies, and, occasionally, the opportunity for us to have deeper discussions on a specific topic or research area.
