Eek! I can’t believe the summer is already almost over. I feel like my hair is on fire! I have so many questions about what to do before the fall semester starts. Can you help me answer some of my most-pressing questions RIGHT NOW?!

Dear Losing-my-cool,

Stay calm! You’re not the only one with questions this time of year; that’s why we offer over 40 topics during our Keep Calm and Teach On program. Visit the Sessions page to skim descriptions for each session or see events in chronological order on the Schedule page. Registration has advantages: a guaranteed seat in popular sessions and a friendly email reminder before the event, though walk-ins are welcome as space allows.

We built the schedule to answer questions just like yours! Here are some of the most frequently asked questions that we get, and the answers that will help you start the semester off right.


I’ve got a lot on my plate this semester. What can Google do for me?

Google has lots of tools and services to help you get organized, and it is a great way to keep all of your information in the same place. You can create spreadsheets to track tasks, you can use forms to get quick feedback from your students about how your course is going, and you can create calendars that will maximize your productivity. Even if you’ve never used these tools before, you’ll find that it only takes a few minutes to get up and running and start the semester off the right way.
