Better Together


Better Together is an online lecture & panel series presented by the Maple League and open to everyone. Through Better Together we imagine the future of post-secondary education and try to map out our next steps on the journey toward getting there.


Through Better Together, we reach out to individuals from across the Maple League who have exciting practices to share about their teaching and/or research. In hour-long online sessions, these individuals share a bit about their subject and then we have a lively Q&A. 

Maple League Hosts are special Better Together sessions where we bring in luminary thinkers, leaders, and educators from outside the Maple League to ignite new conversations and bring new ideas to our campus. 

Better Together runs three seasons a year: Fall, Winter, and Spring/Summer. Sessions are hosted online every-other week. Sessions are promoted through campus listservs and on our social media channels. To be notified when new sessions are made available, consider following us on Eventbrite

Better Together sessions are also recorded! If you'd like to check out some of our past sessions, you can do so on our YouTube page
