Zoom Session Schedule 6.30.20 – 7.2.20

Dear 3CSN Wayfinding Community,

As we move forward into a new month, it’s important for us to reflect on the academic year. The spring semester brought many equity gaps into the spotlight.

With this in mind, we encourage you to take advantage of the 3CSN’s upcoming four-part Design Labs created to support you in student-centered course planning and design as well as strengthening relationships and capacity on the micro and macro levels. We hope to see you in these “deeper dive” sessions! Check your email for our recent invitation (it may be hidden under your promotions tab) or access it here: https://conta.cc/3i6GUWp

Dear 3CSN Wayfinding community,

We hope you are able to take a moment to pause and reflect on all that you have accomplished in the past few months in the face of incredible challenges. We are looking forward to engaging in more wayfinding and transformational learning as a community in the coming months.

We wanted to remind you that we will not be holding any sessions this week (June 8-12) in preparation for our summer sessions. Know, however, that if you need support or have questions this week, we are here for you! Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at ask@3csn.org

Beginning June 16th, we will add 90-minute “Learn and Practice” sessions that will provide opportunity, as the title suggests, to learn and then to do some rapid prototyping in community with educators across the state. You can see the schedule for these sessions on our website at https://www.3csn.org

We will continue to hold one-hour “Learn and Discuss”-style sessions including Library Hour and Classified Professionals hour.

In July we will be offering several multi-part “Design Labs” that will allow participants to delve more deeply into design work in areas such as learning assistance, leadership, partnerships between students and educators, e-portfolios, and course design.
