Conference attendees will be treated to a lunch session, which is also intended to provide them with an opportunity to mingle with other attendees, talk shop, and interact off-script with the conference presenters. We hope that lunch will ultimately afford attendees with the chance to better get to know, and network with, colleagues within their conference tracks of interest.

To close out our conference, the Center for Educational Innovation and the Department of Learning and Instruction in the Graduate School of Education are excited to jointly host a panel discussion. The panelists include secondary and higher education-level instructors who will speak to questions ranging from: how can we connect, engage, and inspire the next generation of students, to what are our students, and the next generation of students, looking for in their educational experiences?
