2020-2021 Key Learning Center Seminar Series
Key Learning Center's Fall 2020 Fireside Chats
Wednesdays - November 4 & 11 and December 2 & 9, 7:00-8:00pm
Cost: $15 per session OR $30 for the 4 part series (each session earns 0.2 CEUs)
KLC's Fall Fireside Chat series is four online sessions, each earning 0.2 CEUs. By participating in all four, you can earn 0.8 CEUs. Join in for one session, a few, or all four! Each 60-minute session requires a short pre-reading exercise and a brief follow-up survey/assignment that acts as your confirmation of learning. Your total time commitment is 2 hours per session which earns the 0.2 CEUs. (Important Note: ALTA members need 0.8 CEUs by December 18, 2020).
These are live open conversations via Zoom. No recordings will be made. We ask that participants have their cameras on and that we are all ready to talk in small groups as well as participate in guided discussions lead by your KLC O-G Fellows and friends of Key. The goal is connecting and discussing topics of importance for our community of O-G MSLE practitioners.
Join us for one or all of our chats! Your registration fee assures your certificate of attendance for each session or for the series.
