I had a great time at ThinkTank9 in Bozeman at Montana State University, June 8-11, 2016. I was in a group focused on identity issues and global citizenship as it relates to the art/design foundations classroom. I met fantastic people, and we came up with some excellent take-aways that I will be using to to evaluate my own classes and assignments. There was a lot of focus on how to help students cultivate empathy and address challenging topics in the classroom.
Many kudos to the people who put this great conference together!
