Proposals due by February 20: 2022 IWCA Online Collaborative

January 25th, 2022|

Let's ponder the question, “Why are you here?” and consider the sense of belonging that we and our students may or may not have in our spaces. At the 2022 IWCA Online Collaborative, we invite proposals for synchronous sessions that focus on supporting one another in design and experimentation, and focus on the process, not product, of research.
