The instructional sessions take place on FASoS campus and run between 4 October – 19 October 2021 (for all colleagues teaching in period 2). For everyone that already registered before this message: it has to be done again because the times in the schedules are changed, sorry for any discomforts. If you are teaching in period 2 and haven’t attended the session in period 1 or want to refresh your mind, we kindly urge you to sign-up for the instructional session through this link.
