Fall in Madison is absolutely beautiful, and the Teaching Academy celebrates this time of year in Wisconsin with a Retreat to gather for a morning of conversations on a relevant theme 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.

The Teaching Academy will be hosting the 2021 Fall retreat on Friday, October 1st from 9 – 11am.  This fully virtual event is free, and registration is unlimited.  Please feel free to share!

The theme of this Fall’s retreat will be Ableism, Disability, and Inclusive Practices.
