Wayfinding Online: Navigating the Virtual Landscape Together

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. In community with colleagues across the state, we are all working hard to address these gaps and to ensure that our students, whether online or in person, will be better supported on their path to academic and personal success.

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

We look forward to more rich learning and sharing together in the coming week. Please note that we will not have any sessions on July 3rd due to the holiday.
