Event Description

The Candid Conversation Series is a space for instructors to reflect and process workshop and teaching experiences (the good, the bad, and the ugly) candidly with one another. We will share and learn from one another in a confidential, supportive space.

May 31st, 6- 7:30, remote Zoom (Session 1)

August 16th (Updated) 6-7:30, remote Zoom (Session 2)

December 6th, 6-7:30pm, remote Zoom (Session 3)

Session 1: Unpacking Difficult Workshop Experiences

Have you had a workshop experience that you wished you had an opportunity to discuss with other instructors? Do you desire a space to reflect on challenges you have had in the classroom or are there difficult situations that you want to process with a group of likeminded people? These meetings will offer you a space to be heard, a space to reflect, and a space to possibly find support.

Each session will offer a reflective space to unpack and learn. Feedback is optional.: You decide if you want to just be heard or if you want varying perspectives from your fellow instructors. GrubStreet’s guidelines for respect and mutuality will be the approach for these series of conversations.

This event is for GrubStreet instructors only.

Class Format
This Professional Development workshop will meet virtually. The link will be sent to participants an hour before the meeting is scheduled to begin.

Covid-19 Update:
GrubStreet's space will be mask optional when Boston's Covid-19 Community Level is low or medium. When the Covid-19 Community Level is high, our space will require masks. Please check GrubStreet's Covid-19 page for the latest info on masking and Community Levels before visiting in-person.


This class will take place using Zoom videoconferencing. Please visit the Resources tab to access the video-conference link.

Zoom Participation:

Students are not required to turn their camera on, but are encouraged to participate any way they feel comfortable through functions such as the live chat, emoji reactions, and unmuting the microphone. Learn more about using Zoom here.

Zoom Accessibility:

We ask that instructors enable closed captioning and send a transcript of the session after class. You can also enable closed captioning at any time during the meeting. If your instructor forgets to send the transcript, just send ’em an email!
