The SAFE Topics Podcast team invites you to a live recording of an episode focused on our students. On Tuesday, January 19 at 5:00pm, Sean and curry will ask a panel of MiraCosta faculty, who teach across the disciplines: what’s working, what’s challenging, and what should students expect as we all prepare for another semester of remote/online teaching and learning? And we want your input too!
With students as our primary audience in mind, we will ask you, our audience, to use the Zoom chat and our Instagram (@safetopics_podcast) to pose questions, share stories, and engage with our panel in an authentic and informed conversation. What can we all do and what can our students do to better facilitate learning and success this spring?
We want to hear from a variety of perspectives, and we believe you have something valuable to contribute to this discussion! We hope you’ll join us tomorrow!!
