Teachers Talking

Good Conversation. Free Lunch.


The Kendall Center’s "Teachers Talkings" are opportunities for faculty and staff to share information with colleagues that is relevant to teaching in its broadest form (e.g, advising, assessment, student support, etc.). Please email Patricia English-Schneider or Dan Moos if you are interested in leading a "Teachers Talking" session or have an idea for a session you would like someone else to lead. All ideas are welcomed and encouraged!

Free Lunch at Three Crowns Buffet, then meet in St Peter Room
