UW System, Wisconsin Technical College System, WAICU, College of the Menominee Nation, and Ojibwe College are sponsoring a two-day, virtual professional development conference for Wisconsin faculty & instructors as part of our state-wide 60 Forward Initiative. The theme this year is Equity in the College Classroom: Educating Ourselves as Educators. The two-day workshop will include student panels, faculty panels, small group discussions and two plenary sessions. The plenary session on October 1 features Elder Ada Deer and UW-Green Bay’s Dr. Lisa Poupart. The plenary session on October 15 features Chinese-American author, educator and filmmaker, Lee Mun Wah.
If interested please visit the event webpage to review the schedule and register for one or both days.
The conference will also serve as the kick-off event for UW-Green Bay’s 2021–2022 Equity in Gateway and Introductory Courses Community of Practice. Our first group meeting will be in November and will focus on what participants learned from the conference and how they might apply it to their own classes. If interested in joining our Community of Practice, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
