What is the Magna Commons?

What are 20 Minute Mentors?

Magna 20 Minute Mentors answer your questions about teaching. Magna states that "Our highly respected presenters give you the "here's how" advice that you can start using right away. Each session lasts for just 20 minutes — long enough to deliver actionable insights, but short enough to fit anyone's schedule".
