Happy Earth Day!

We invite you to continue the Earth Day tradition by engaging in the Earth Day at 50 Teach-Out and joining a new online course looking at the unprecedented challenges facing the sustainability of our planet and society.
You’re invited to engage in an intergenerational and interdisciplinary conversation about what sustainability means across different sectors, disciplines, and lived experiences. Hear from more than 20 experts as they explore themes including global sustainability efforts, climate change, environmental justice, and more. We hope this global conversation will inspire you to take individual action and help to develop collective visions for a sustainable, just, and peaceful world.

If you are interested in SPACE  here is a link to storytime by U.S. astronauts, mostly from the international space station: https://storytimefromspace.com/library/ 

Astronauts read stories and the text of the stories is displayed at the same time.  This makes it a great English-learning resource (plus it's extra cool because the readers are astronauts!).  Here are the bios of the U.S. Astronauts who read the books. You can also search on NASA for their official bio:

As the world continues to practice social distancing and stay indoors, it's given rise to collective thinking that 'working towards a goal at times like this is a good distraction.' The goal could be as simple as meditating for 5 mins every day, to baking sourdough bread or as complex as learning to do an unassisted headstand! Or, it could be to hone some foundational skills towards professional development. In this uncertain environment, it's essential that learning continues, even if it can't happen in person. That's why we're providing access to expert faculty, best practices, and other online learning resources for people who are studying, teaching, or working remotely.
