The Virtual Café

Stay connected and network with your colleagues at EVMS through a new form of professional inquiry. Join us for a Professional Development Perspectives Virtual Café Chat! The format is an informal virtual discussion among fellow educators and practitioners to explore and exchange ideas, thoughts, experiences, and opportunities on various topics.

Do you have a topic you would like to suggest or volunteer to moderate? We encourage you to contribute! Email
