In Spring 2016 NoC’s Hangout series will take place. The NoC Hangout series is an opportunity for NoC members to participate in monthly learning calls led by the NoC researchers for the purpose of sharing, discussing, and collaborating on issues of common interest. Each learning call will feature a different research topic members of the NoC are currently working on. Hangout leaders will briefly introduce a topic of interest and facilitate a conversation with other NoC members. We anticipate the Hangouts will serve as an opportunity for knowledge exchange, help participants brainstorm around new areas of inquiry and exploration, and foster connections and collaboration within the NoC community.
