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.

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
