The 2021 December (Un)Conference took place on December 17, 2021.
Thanks to everyone who participated!
The (Un) part of the conference is based on the fact that most of the sessions are decided by community vote only a week or two before the conference begins! See below for the final program.
Our morning workshop topic was: Are inclusion/flexibility and academic rigour mutually exclusive? Thank you to everyone who participated in the workshop topic survey, provided pitches and voted!

Balancing Flexibility and Rigour to Support Student Success
In this session, we will explore the concept of rigour and its relationship to inclusive, flexible teaching. Using Universal Design for Learning as a framework, we will discuss proactive strategies for maintaining high course standards while reaching all students. We will consider how to integrate flexibility and inclusion within the limitations of resources, time, and energy instructors have to devote to their teaching.
