In an effort to promote sustainability and reduce our environmental impact, we will not be providing printed materials such as schedules, agendas, or handouts. Instead, we will be providing all necessary information and resources digitally. Paper versions of materials can be requested via the registration form.

Please bring a laptop, tablet, or other internet-accessible device to access the digital resources and participate in activities during the event.

You are also encouraged to bring your own water bottle and name tag if you have one.

The CALS Teaching Experience is offered at no cost to participants, thanks to support from the CALS Office of Academic Programs and the CALS Office of Curriculum Development and Instructional Support.
