Learning to Lead

During the 2020-2021 academic year, the Office of Student Success hosted a virtual series called Learning to Lead, available across all TBR campuses. The series had two components: a Leadership series and Book Clubs. Recording to the Leadership series workshops can be found below. 

The Learning to Lead program continues in the fall of 2021 with the "From the Vice Chancellor's Shelf" Book Club with Dr. Heidi Leming. 

Leadership 102

Workshops were offered to students throughout the semester in 50-minute sessions. These workshops focused on building and developing student leadership skills. 

Book Clubs

Book clubs will be offered for faculty/staff through The Vice Chancellor's Book Shelf Book Club. Faculty/staff can participate in any of three offered book clubs based on their interests and availability.

Questions? Please reach out to Kristina Krau Waymire, Director of Student Initiatives.

Best Practices and Norms

For all of our virtual offerings, we utilize Microsoft Teams. Please follow the suggested guidelines when participating in the book clubs:

  • If you are comfortable having your video on, please do so!
  • If your video is on, however, please blur your background. 
    • You can do this on the “join now” screen before you enter the call. There is a square icon between the video and microphone icons representing a blurred background, and you can toggle the switch so that it is on.
  • Please mute your microphone when you are not speaking
  • If possible, use headphones with a built-in microphone (wired or wireless) this will cut down on ambient background noise and allow you to be heard more clearly.
  • Use the "raise hand" feature when wanting to speak, this will avoid interruptions and allow the facilitator to ensure you have the space to speak.
    • You may also utilize the chat feature for questions/comments as well.
