Eberhard Conference Center

As much as our students differ from us, they also differ from each other. These differences are not always visible. As the population of traditionally aged students continues to decline, we are going to see greater variations among our students in terms of age, background, prior experiences and a host of other factors. How are faculty responding? The opening remarks and concurrent sessions will provide context as well as practical strategies to engage a wide range of students.

Please join us for this important conversation and to reconnect with your colleagues around teaching and learning.  Throughout the coming academic year, look for additional opportunities to engage with this topic. In addition, resources and citations will be added to the conference website for your reference.
