Campus Calls

Campus Calls are scheduled by the campus point person using this link to identify the date/time, topic, and additional attendees. You can identify the topics and attendees when you schedule or update as the pre-scheduled time approaches.


Group Calls

Group calls are set at pre-determined times by Keith with topics determined by the group and as events unfold in the world, with curriculum, and in higher ed. We try to limit group calls to 1-3 people for each institution.
