- Must assist in delivering at least one face-to-face training session related to distance teaching sometime between July 1 and April 1 of the given year. This may include workshops offered by the DDEC or other related campus workshops. Providing a 7-Minute Sizzle Talk at an Apollo Luncheon also meets this criteria.
