Monty MS Teams

Maybe, you want to check out courses in advance of registration. You're in luck! Monty maintains an up-to-date list of exciting course syllabi for you to peruse! It’s available on the shared MS Teams account that all members can access (under ‘Course info’; if for some reason you don’t have access, let any Exec know and they’ll fix it). The Teams and the lounge itself both host a wealth of other resources, including textbooks and reference materials.
