Communities of Practice (CoPs)
This year, we are delighted to offer two CoP opportunities relating to Mindful Tech.
Join us as we continue the discussion of using technology mindfully in the classroom, in research, and in everyday life. We will meet to reflect on the themes in the book as well as the ideas shared at the related events throughout the year.
