Resource walk-throughs are short but informative tours of material with resource authors. Authors will describe the resource, instructional setting, and how they have modified the material to teach remotely. Do you have a resource and want to do a walk-through with us? Contact Deb Rook (deb "dot" rook "at" bioquest "dot" org) to set one up.
