This event is part of the 2024 Celebrate Learning Week, taking place from May 6–10, 2024. 

This closing panel will invite leaders of teaching and learning across three different institutions to reflect on the ways teaching and learning scholarship and practice will evolve or transform in the coming years. In particular the panelists will explore how campus communities might respond to the changing landscape or evolving faculty roles, the rise of AI and other new technologies, the increased emphasis and importance of equity, Indigenization, accessibility, and wellbeing in our teaching and learning environments, and the changing needs of our increasingly diverse students.
