Twitter Chat: Collab Lab 34: Tapping industry expertise
Thursday April 9 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Collab Lab 34 will run as a Twitter chat at #CollabLabChat
Schools want to connect their students to industry expertise. Industry wants to develop and recruit talent. What gets in the way of making these connections? What needs to be in place to build effective partnerships?
Join us to connect with K-12 colleagues from across the area, as well as community partners from industry, higher ed, and non-profits to share ideas and explore possibilities where collaborative efforts could help move things along.
7:00 pm – 8:00 pm Ask questions, share your ideas from the safety of your couch
