Come relax with like-minded colleagues for an hour at the end of your week. Participate in conversations around evidence-based teaching that will inspire you to put the ideas we discuss into practice. You'll find us on Zoom the second and fourth Friday of every month (4-5 PM Eastern/1-2 PM Pacific).
