spring '22 events

Re-centering community

Dates/Times: Every Tuesday and Wednesday, 12-1 PM
Location: Rotating among: Murdock 209 (Academic Technology), Bowman 121 (Faculty Center), Venable 107 (CTL) | online via Teams

Drop by for an informal chance to take a break and connect! This semester, we want to offer something more responsive to our continuing pandemic stresses than just another "workshop series". We believe that restoring our human connections is a priority at this time. So, this semester, tech takes a passenger seat: our focus will be strengthening our relationships across the campus community, and rebalancing the place of technology within them. Every week this spring, on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, we'll be hosting events that remind us of the values of food, music, conversation, and (safely) inhabiting space together.

Each week will be "themed" with a broad question/prompt designed to spark conversation; but also, importantly, with snacks, a playlist of music, and other media/art as we get creative. :) We will of course continue offering remote attendance as a standard option for all our events, even as we invite in-person community.
