LEND and Learn Monthly TA Series

LEND and Learn Monthly TA Series

The new LEND and Learn Monthly TA Series is an opportunity for LEND leadership and faculty to gather once a month to discuss priority TA topics and to learn from each other! Each month will focus on a different topic. A different LEND program will lead each session, including a 15-minute presentation and 45 minutes discussion. Please note that this is not a webinar series. Instead, it is designed to be an informal opportunity for LENDs to connect on topics identified as top TA needs. DBP programs are welcome to participate. The series will occur on the 4th Monday of every month from 3:00 PM-4:00 PM Eastern Time. (Date may change depending on holidays or speaker schedule.)

  • Registration is required.

  • The event will be held on the Zoom Platform. You can test your connection with Zoom before joining the meeting here.
  • Recording of this LEND and Learn session is available to LEND leadership and faculty upon request to [email protected].
