Conversations with Colleagues: September

September 20, 2022 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Conversations with Colleagues

Making Meaningful Connections

This academic year, NED has adopted the theme Creating Equity through Connection.

“The theme of connection allows us to intentionally explore ways to create belonging for students, colleagues, and ourselves. As we work to create change for equity in our classrooms, we will inevitably experience the ‘implementation dip’ – the feelings of self-consciousness and chaos that occur when we implement new practices,” (Fullan 2007).

Join us for a brief video viewing from Johann Hari, author of Lost Connections: Why You are Depressed and How to Find Hope. We will then engage in a discussion about making meaningful connections with colleagues and students.

Conversations with Colleagues is a monthly platform for colleagues across Minnesota State to gather remotely to share ideas and bring questions (along with your lunch). These monthly gatherings will provide you opportunity to engage in rich conversation in both small and large groups and networking with colleagues across the state! You will also be able to add your name to a list of faculty and staff who are willing to share expertise and areas of interest with others. We have amazing innovations and work being done across the state and the goal of Conversations with Colleagues is to foster a network of support for faculty and staff across Minnesota State.

Conversations with Colleagues is hosted by faculty and staff from the Minnesota State Faculty Development Committee.

Register for the other conversations: November | February | April
