Education Engagement Miniseries: Transforming the Teaching and Learning Experience | May 2 – 3, 2023

The Teaching Innovations Work Group (TWIG) is excited to offer a two-day virtual miniseries that encourages connection and learning for the education community at UCSF. Educators will have the opportunity to learn from one another and discover new and innovative ways to leverage technology and pedagogy to support students in their learning and success.

Join faculty, educators, instructional designers, and education tech enthusiasts as they share their teaching strategies and perspectives for transforming learning environments to meet their student’s needs. Attendees will leave with practical tips and resources that can be adopted and implemented into their courses.

This event is relevant for UCSF faculty and anyone supporting academic programs at UCSF. Please register for each individual session you would like to attend.
