Applied Learning Across the Curriculum

The 2023 conference theme focuses on the integration of applied learning within and across the curriculum. This broad theme should allow and encourage submissions of applied learning activities in all various forms. Submissions do not have to directly encompass the theme. We welcome submissions that may address an applied learning activity, community engagement or research, including theoretical and philosophical foundations of applied learning.
