Tip of the Day

The Language Center Tip of the Day blog offers one small tip or reminder every few days. Topics include anything having to do with teaching and learning in the current instructional environment. We invite ideas, tips, and suggestions from the community.

The blog was launched by Dan Soneson, the former Language Center Director, in March 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic shifted all teaching and learning to an online format, as a way to maintain and build community. The blog included posts from a Language Center staff, as well as instructors from language departments.

The blog was paused in May 2021. It was relaunched by Interim Director Beth Kautz in March 2022 in a new format.

Posts from 2020 and 2021 indexed and available on the Blogger platform, and new posts are available at the new Tip of the Day blog.
