Come and contribute to the study of this year's BIG question

The Teaching-Learning Academy at Western Washington University begins this quarter with an important question: How will we cultivate and connect communities in which the whole person grows and relationships flourish?

Whether or not you've participated in a regular TLA dialog in the past, all are welcome to attend and contribute to the study of this year’s BIG question. TLA participants include faculty, staff, students, and community members who meet every other week in the Library's Learning Commons, Wilson Library 270.

The winter 2013 dialog group options include Wednesday at noon or 2 p.m. on Jan. 16, Jan. 30, Feb. 13, Feb. 27 and Mar. 13. Additional options are Thursdays at noon or 2 p.m. on Jan. 17, Jan. 31, Feb. 14, Feb. 28 and Mar. 14. Groups meet every other week for a total of five meetings beginning Jan. 16 or 17, and sessions last officially for 80 minutes, but many faculty and staff leave early if needed.
