Join the October Conversations with Colleagues for a discussion about the upcoming elections

October 20, 2020 @ 12:00 – 1:00 pm

Watch a welcome video from this month’s faculty facilitator Miki Huntington (Minneapolis College & Metropolitan State University).

The upcoming 2020 elections present an important opportunity for civic engagement, learning, and action. We invite all faculty to be a part of community efforts to mobilize, educate, and commit to full participation in the 2020 elections.

Join us for this month’s Conversations with Colleagues as we provide an overview of upcoming events as a starting point for sharing ideas and best practices for voter education and engagement. We can continue the conversation about about upcoming events at your respective campuses, as well as steps for integrating voter information and activities into your fall courses.

What questions do you have about the upcoming 2020 elections? Do you know how the Electoral College works? How can you navigate conversations about in-person voting and reduced and moved polling stations over concerns of virus spread? What are some reliable and non-partisan sources of voter information?

Looking forward to seeing you at our Conversation with Colleagues!

What is Conversations with Colleagues?

When colleagues readied themselves for emergency remote teaching this spring, we all received a powerful reminder in the value of social learning. Colleagues from across the system who had been separated from one another through physical distance came together online to share ideas and learn from one another.  We would like to sustain this social learning through Conversations with Colleagues, a monthly virtual opportunity for those who are interested in connecting with one another.

Meet new faculty, gather with long-time friends from across Minnesota State, and bring questions and ideas (along with your lunch) to these monthly gatherings that will include conversation starters and an opportunity for both large and small group conversations. Additionally, you’ll be able to add your name to a searchable list of faculty and staff who are willing to share their expertise and areas of interest with others.

Find these events and more on the Network for Educational Development (NED) calendar.

Questions? Contact Catherine Ford.
