UPCOMING EVENTS

Fellowship Fridays are Back for Summer

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.

Fridays | “Fellowship Fridays” | 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm, ZOOM (doc can only be viewed with an Augsburg login)

If you need any disability-related accommodation to fully participate in this event, please contact University Events at events@augsburg.edu or 612-330-1104. Please allow for sufficient time to arrange the accommodation.
