Calendar: upcoming events
CIRTL Coffee Hours are informal, hour-long discussions led by a panel of faculty and staff from CIRTL Institutions. Following brief presentations by the panelists, the session is open for questions and discussion. It is an excellent opportunity for sharing ideas, and learning from peers at colleges and universities across the country.
Those events marked with an * will be hosted in a lecture venue, with time for discussions after the webcast.
Of course, you are still able (and welcome) to follow the presentation from your own office/home.
