Situated Learning Community Event
Thursday, April 25

Greetings!

You are cordially invited to a DoIT Engage Community Event: Teaching with Situated Learning. The event features campus faculty and instructors who are experimenting with situated learning in their instruction to promote deeper student engagement.
