CAT Unleashed Workshops
CAT+FD introduced CAT Unleashed workshops in January 2020, in an effort to "untether" our workshops from the physical space of our offices and to make them more accessible to busy faculty. Originally, the CAT Unleashed workshops were regular, live workshops held in our usual faculty development spaces that were also made available live online. With the sudden switch to remote teaching in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, all CAT+FD workshops became, in a sense, unleashed, as we began hosting all sessions online only.
