Birds of a Feather Sessions

The Birds of a Feather or disciplinary networking sessions were designed to give participants an opportunity to meet colleagues with similar interests and discover what they are doing. Conference evaluations from past years indicated that participants wanted more opportunities to network with like projects and centers. These sessions featured small group breakouts to provide participants the opportunity to share promising practices, resources, and lessons learned; collaborate on future endeavors; and establish professional networks and communities of practice. 

The session notes and/or summaries will be posted as they are received by AACC.
