Upcoming Events

Wellness in Color Podcast Discussion | Monday, April 12 | 3:10 pm – 4:10 pm | ZOOM

It’s hard to ignore our emotional, psychological, and social well-being today when it’s being inundated with MAJOR stressors that affect how we think, feel, and act. Please join CTL fellows and other faculty/staff for a discussion of mental health, especially related to communities of color. We will be facilitating a discussion on NAMI Minnesota’s Wellness in Color podcasts. Please listen to three of these podcasts (available at https://namimn.org/education-and-public-awareness/podcast-episodes/) and come discuss what you’ve learned on a Zoom meeting with other faculty and staff members. We will be meeting on Monday, April 12 from 3:10 pm to 4:10 pm to listen to so that we will have things in common that we can discuss. Please listen to the following podcasts: “Blurring Tradition,” “Flipping the Status Quo,” and “Between Two Worlds.”

EDTalks

This year, EDTalks will be pre-recorded and have a community “premiere” on Zoom hosted by CTL at 3:10 pm on days when there is a faculty meeting. These premieres will end no later than 3:30pm to allow plenty of time to log into the Faculty Zoom meeting early.  After the premier, the recording will be posted on the CTL website, along with any resources (if applicable).

Fellowship Fridays

CTL is joining Bridget Robinson-Riegler, Psychology Professor and member of Faculty Senate, to bring you Fellowship Fridays support sessions. All faculty members and teaching staff are invited to gather and share their experiences with teaching, learning, and advising in this strange new world.  – we’ll trade ideas, advice, highs, lows, successes, and failures – or maybe we’ll just plain old vent. Most importantly, we will attempt to inoculate ourselves against one of the more insidious side effects of this pandemic – isolation. So grab a cup of coffee or tea, or pour a glass of wine, and Zoom in to support your fellow instructors and work through this challenging time together.
