In January, 2019, we gathered with faculty at the DoubleTree Hotel in Austin, Texas to network and share evidence-based practices in teaching in learning. Friendships and collaborations were formed and strengthened as participants engaged in presentations and discussions over the 3 day conference. Some participants took advantage of our free shuttle to 6th Street and explored downtown Austin in the evenings, but their dedication showed as everyone gathered the next morning ready to learn more still.
