Attending conference presentations is not an opportunity that is equitably available to everyone who works at a college or university. Thanks to funding from Ascendium Education Foundation, we can bring this series of top-notch speakers and presentations directly to your campus.
Below are three presentations that can be used by you and your colleagues for personal or shared professional development. Please take the time watch each of these presentations and consider how the recommendations offered by each speaker could be applied to your work on behalf of students.
