Morning Blend

Morning Blend is a weekly discussion on a specific topic that impacts teaching and/or scholarship. The program will run on Zoom on Monday mornings and be repeated on Thursday mornings, both at 9 a.m. After the sessions, a video recording and tip sheet will be available to anyone who attended or wishes to engage with the material online.

Each Morning Blend session includes a 10-15 minute presentation with specific, action-oriented information about that week's topic. We then invite participants to share ideas about the topic until 9:45 a.m. Although we plan for 45 minutes, participants may feel free to engage for any time period that their schedule allows.

We invite faculty to grab a cup of coffee or tea and please join us here on Zoom on the dates below, no registration required, or bookmark this page and watch the recorded sessions when you are available. Note the recorded sessions will only include the presentation and will not include the discussion.
