This year’s annual ALT Conference was a bit of a different experience for me as it’s the first time in years that I wasn’t speaking or doing social media coverage, I was “just” a delegate among over 300 others, and honestly it was a welcome experience just to be part of that community and to […]

It’s getting to that time of year again. Welcome week is fast approaching and we’re all gearing up for the start of semester.
