APeL is dedicated to the diversification of instructional horizons at William & Mary. We partner with faculty members across the university to develop their skills and awareness in the sphere of eLearning. Workshops stimulate exploration and engagement by connecting broader instructional and pedagogical concepts with practical examples from peers. Faculty who complete the series and participate in an end of year symposium receive an eLearning certificate.
