UGA Winter Conference Workshop
In addition to the featured games, a Winter Conference Workshop will be held from January 15-16, 2021, focusing on issues of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
- January 7th, 2-3:30 PM ET: Curriculum Change in Trying Times
In this interactive workshop, veteran administrators and faculty who have been involved with the Reacting to the Past Endeavor Grant project (working with 20 institutional teams on significant curriculum change) will provide insights on engaging your campus in curriculum reform to achieve your mission, meet accreditation demand, and engage students in learning. This event may be especially of interest to folks who are trying to convince or encourage administrators on your campus about the value of Reacting, and how it can support your school's mission.
Below is a list of our upcoming conferences, workshops, and presentations. The list will be updated with further details including games, locations, and content as the Consortium finalizes event planning.
