Remix and Mastery

Tuesday, January 17 and Wednesday, January 18, 2017

This year’s conference theme, Remix and Mastery, invites us to reflect on the challenges and rewards of developing expertise in an ever-changing world. How do we draw on our own expertise, developed in the past, as we teach the students we have today? How do we maintain a balance between a respect for the past and a vision for the future? How might we encourage our students’ mastery even as we remix our world, our institution, and our classrooms?
