Due to the COVID-19 out-break, the Regional Summer Institutes on Scientific Teaching will be postponed to the summer of 2021. The good news is that we will be able to offer an online SI, as we have in the past, led by Bill Wischusen. Keep your eye on the newsletter or the website as we will be looking for ways to engage the community virtually.
