Open to instructors at all campuses within the Universities of Wisconsin, including teaching assistants as well as academic instructional staff and faculty.

This year's theme is "The Joys of Learning: Engaging Students." Our teaching and learning practices begin and end with students. Engaging students in learning is an ongoing challenge and doesn’t happen without thoughtful, intentional efforts. Every class is different and requires nuanced approaches depending on the students, the class modality (in-person, online, or hybrid), and context. The Covid pandemic exposed the complex lives of our students, and instructors, and the multiple stressors that impact our lives. The pandemic may be under control, but some stressors remain. As educators, how are we ensuring that all of our students are engaged and supported to succeed? What strategies and approaches have you found effective or promising? We invite you to share your experiences engaging students in the joys of learning, and look forward to seeing you and your systemwide colleagues together at OPID’s annual conference.
