Learn how to keep in touch with your friends, family, and larger (scholarly) network

Things are changing quickly. Faculty members around the world are transitioning their courses to online. Students are adapting to a new way of learning.

This webinar is all about how to stay connected, how to stay social, while social distancing.

We're going to talk about several forms of communication like

  • social media
  • direct messaging
  • email
  • phone calls
  • video chat

And we'll talk about how to reach out to people with empathy through these various means.

Empathy is so important right now, which is why we're talking about how to reach out to people with compassion. And, best practices for connecting when someone is sick.

We'll also talk about staying connected long-term.

Social distancing means keeping apart physically. We can still stay social, and this webinar is all about how.
