Open to all! Fall in Madison is absolutely beautiful, and the Teaching Academy celebrates this time of year in Wisconsin with a Fall Kickoff. Each Fall, after the semester begins, we gather for a morning of conversations on themes in higher education teaching and learning. These topics help to prepare instructors and faculty for another successful year with undergraduate students and allow campus educators to discuss new updates in undergraduate education.
