Full Program of Events


This Year’s Theme: "Meeting Learning Where It’s At"

Wed., Aug. 17, 2022 | 8:30 a.m.-3:00 p.m. | UCO College of Liberal Arts

Clearly, the pandemic has disrupted education in many ways. Has a “new normal” been created for good or will we return to the way things were pre-pandemic? While no one may really know the answer, at this Collegium we will collectively explore how we can be more present to what teaching and learning currently is, regardless of where this takes us…
