Thank you to everyone who attended the 7th Annual Adjunct Faculty Teaching & Learning Conference on Thursday, September 10, 2020! Our featured speaker, Dr. Thomas J. Tobin (Program Area Director for Distance Teaching & Learning on the Learning, Design, Development, & Innovation team at the University of Wisconsin-Madison), facilitated an engaging keynote presentation and workshop focusing on ways to better reach our students through more intentional design of our teaching and learning experiences.

The conference also included an adjunct faculty panel discussion and closed with an interactive BINGO game (10 lucky winners won a copy of Tom Tobin’s book, Reach Everyone, Teach Everyone: Universal Design for Learning in Higher Education). We were also pleased to welcome some adjunct faculty colleagues from College of Lake County, Elgin Community College, Kishwaukee College, McHenry County College, and Waubonsee Community College.
