Great Ideas Summit faculty presenters announced

A key part of the Center for Teaching and Learning’s Great Ideas events is to invite Boise State educators to share their teaching practices as they relate to that year’s theme. This year’s theme is “Humanizing Education” and the Great Ideas Summit planning committee has announced the 2024 lightning talk presenters and, as a new addition to the agenda, round table facilitators, who will address how they are humanizing education in their work.

These are just part of the learning and engagement opportunities in this year’s Great Ideas Summit. To learn more, and to register, visit the Great Ideas Summit webpage.
