Highlights from the 2017 Faculty Conference:

Time Lapse Knowledge Wall Development. 2017 Faculty Development Conference.

In order to capture a visual representation of the range of learning for the Faculty Development Conference, we contracted with Sita Magnuson, a visual facilitator for Dpict. Sita drew metaphorically and literally from our materials and presentations, along with headliners from all our sessions. I challenge you to find SAIL, Domains, and PAN. How many times do we use the word learn! Click on the image below to enlarge.
