LEAP Workshop 2018

All UW-Whitewater faculty, staff, and students are invited to form teams and apply to participate in this year’s LEAP workshop series. LEAP (Liberal Education & America’s Promise) is a campus-wide initiative aimed at helping teams develop action plans to enhance campus collaboration and improve student learning and success.

There are two different opportunities this year.  If you are new to LEAP, the Introduction to LEAP workshop series is a great opportunity to learn how our campus is using LEAP to improve teaching, learning and student success.  If you have attended a LEAP workshop in the past or are interested in metacognition/growth mindset, then the Growth Mindset workshop is for you.  You will use LEAP principles to design and implement a project that involves Growth Mindset to improve student success.

Nearly 700 people on 135 teams have participated so far. Now it’s your turn! The application
deadline is Friday, December. 8.  Please  click  on the LEAP Icon below to download the application instructions.
