The idea for TALIN was prompted by suggestions in numerous cross-fertilizing communities of practice that there was needed a space where members of these CoPs could meet online and talk informally to one another about how they are dealing with changes in their personal and professional contexts and what they are doing to help others in this trying time of pandemic.
TALIN events are open to all and free to attend.They are recorded and archived here and at Learning2gether.net. Anyone can initiate an event by requesting Access to the TALIN schedule page http://tinyurl.com/talin2020 and writing-in their event. The brief presentation will explain how TALIN came about and how you can participate.
