All those committed to student success in higher education are welcome to attend.
The keynote speaker for the symposium on March 13 is Deborah Santiago, COO of Excelencia in Education, who will address ways for minority-enrolling institutions to become institutions that truly serve minoritized students.
There will be two pre-symposium workshops from 9:00 am – Noon on Friday, March 13. There is no additional fee to attend a workshop, but space is limited:
- An Introduction to Inquiry-Based Learning
- Supporting Disciplinary Learning through Deeper Reading and Metacognitive Conversation
New this year is a series of five virtual sessions, from 8:15 am-11:45 am on Friday, March 13. These sessions feature presentations on immersive and virtual reality, teaching and learning for social justice, and a sneak peek at an online teaching essentials course.
