Lunch with CU Online

We have some brand new staff here at CU Online and we would love the opportunity to get to know you! We would like to sit down with you over lunch and hear about your research interests or projects that you have been developing. We are also interested in any burning questions you might have about instructional design, best practices for teaching online, and any Canvas-related questions. One of our staff members at CU Online will bring lunch to your office and meet with you for one hour. We are excited for this opportunity to serve you better! ​We make visits to both the CU Denver campus and the CU Anschutz Medical Campus. Simply fill out our request form and be sure to follow the instructions in the follow-up email.
