Think Tanks

Do you miss the richness of ITAC4 and learning how colleagues work in different cultures? Now you can get a hit of ITAC every month, conveniently at your computer (using the easy ZOOM video chat platform). Join our ongoing ITAC—each month a Host from a different part of the world will share insights about their work, and in discussion with you and others, dig deep about the ways this could help you develop your own practice . Yes, you can invite friends and colleagues to join with you to further share the global perspective.  Keep your teaching artistry expanding to embrace the world.
