Participants from the Teaching-Learning Academy (TLA) at Western Libraries invite you to explore this question during the upcoming off-campus dialogue which will be held at the Fairhaven Branch of the Bellingham Library (1117 12th St.) on Tuesday, Feb. 13, 2020 from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

A brief informational panel featuring members of the Bellingham community will be followed by small group discussion among all participants.

The TLA Community Dialogues are a chance for students, faculty, staff, and community members to come together and explore questions and issues that affect us all. These dialogues also give participants a way to explore difficult topics, practice and refine productive communication strategies, and develop interpersonal communication and collaboration skills.

For this event series, the TLA is partnering with the WWU Center for Community Learning and the Volunteer Center of Whatcom County. Events are open to everyone, and participation offers a way to get involved, meet new people, and make connections outside of the typical academic setting. No advanced registration is required, but faculty and staff wishing to participate in this dialogue as part of their Employee Development Plan can sign up through PageUp via the online training portal
