Looking for something different? In this unique synchronous blended book study format, you and other course participants will have the opportunity to meet virtually from the comfort of your own home to engage in “book club” discussions at dates and times determined by learners’ availability. We will walk through this book together, exploring and reflecting upon the intricacies of our professional lives as educators and the “unique aspects that make up the HEART of a professional life: happiness, engagement, alliances, risk, and thought.” (Kanold, 2017) You will deepen your understanding through book club “meet-ups,” journaling, exchanging ideas, and developing personal strategies to incorporate into your life as an educator. Access to technology with a webcam (cellphone, computer, tablet) with live streaming capabilities is necessary to take this course. Synchronous meetings will use a provided ZOOM conferencing link. Convenient dates will be determined as a group by registered learners.
