Register for the Applied Learning Virtual Summer Institute, July 28-30

Applied Learning Summer Institute Adapts to an App 

Like many other aspects of our lives, the COVID-19 pandemic has turned higher education upside down. As educators, we must adapt to our new normal, while also being tasked with the added challenge of reimagining how the fall semester will look.

Every summer since 2013, the Applied Learning program has hosted an annual Summer Institute where faculty and staff have joined together to share best practices and highlight student success stories about their educational experiences with Applied Learning.

This summer, our time together is needed more than ever, to creatively collaborate and reimagine the future of Applied Learning at UNCW. Please join us for Applied Learning’s first virtual Summer Institute, July 28-30, 2020.




Why go virtual?

  • Your safety and well-being is our top priority.
  • Apart, but not alone—human connection is essential for our mental health during these unprecedented times
  • The show must go on—we need your help in adapting Applied Learning experiences to a virtual environment for our students this fall
