Online STEM Lab listserv

Dear colleagues,

We are writing to share a Listserv that can be a resource as many of us consider what remote learning looks like for laboratory teaching in STEM.

This list is a space for sharing ideas and supporting each other as we take our lab courses online. Moderation will be limited to post approval once a day. Anyone can join this list without moderator approval. Please feel free to share this with anyone in the STEM community who is interested.
