MIXER 2021: Control + C -> What We Learned
CITEL Inaugural Teaching and Learning Conference
Thursday, June 17th-Friday, June 18th, 2021

Meeting of Innovative Expert Educators at Reinhardt (MIXER)

CITEL's MIXER 2021: Control + C -> What We Learned as we reflect on a year of innovation by necessity.

MIXER 2021: Ctrl + C->What We Learned is CITEL's first-ever Teaching and Learning Conference, which is intended to bridge communication between secondary and post-secondary institutes at Reinhardt University.

When the abrupt transition to online learning occurred, all educators were forced, by necessity, to learn new tools and pedagogies.  Moving forward, what new tools and pedagogies will you continue to use, even after pandemic restrictions are lifted? The theme for our inaugural conference is Necessity.

Join us June 17-18 for CITEL's MIXER 2021:  Control + C -> What We Learned as we reflect on a year of innovation by necessity. The conference will be held in the Hill-Freeman Library on the campus of Reinhardt University.
