Creative Escapes Recorded Sessions

As we all searched for ways to cope during the unprecedented times caused by COVID-19, we needed to come together as a community to support one another. During the summer of 2020, The Center for Research on Teaching and Learning Excellence (CRTLE) designed a Microsoft Teams Live event series to showcase outstanding UTA faculty members and their work, providing stimulation, education, and entertainment during this period of uncertainty. UTA faculty, students, staff, alumni, and the community were welcome to join. Below you will find the recordings of the live events we presented under the banner of Creative Escapes (2020 & 2021).
