The University of Tennessee at Martin and West Texas A&M University have partnered to host the Experiential Learning Leadership Institute on March 25-27 at Discovery Park of America in Union City. Dr. Sean Walker, UT Martin associate professor of management, will serve as keynote speaker.
The institute will focus on active, hands-on learning and how it can be applied in classrooms at all levels to improve student comprehension. Registration is $275 for those presenting in a concurrent session, $50 for university students and $75 for area K-12 educators and community participants.
March 25 will offer on-site experiential leadership training modules for those educators who are already participating in that program. Concurrent presentation sessions will begin at 9 a.m., March 26, and end with dinner and a keynote speaker at 6 p.m. that evening. The conference will conclude March 27 with poster presentations by student researchers.
