About Our Virtual Coffee Shops

As part of our effort to support communications and foster companionship across our network, the JSN is offering opportunities for people to share ideas, questions and documentation.  These “virtual coffee shops” include:

  1. Scheduled real-time video conference sessions
  2. Session documentation
  3. Links to Connected Threads continuing conversations

Suggested attendees will be emailed links to GoToMeeting sessions and document warehouse resources.  

If you have questions about our Virtual Coffee Shops, please contact Tim Sassen.


Spring 2021

The JSN is scheduling Virtual Coffee Shops for the spring semester of the 2020-2021 academic year.

Continuing The Conversations - Connecting Threads

The conversations within our Virtual Coffee Shops can continue asynchronously within the JSN’s Connecting Threads.  This interactive platform allows our network members to exchange questions and ideas on key topics and issues via video, audio and text comments.
