2018-19 Webinar Series:  21st-century undergraduate field education

To build community learning and involvement, UFERN will host a series of monthly interactive webinars within the 2018-2019 school year. These webinars will generally occur every 2nd Wednesday of the month at 10 am Pacific time. We will invite speakers and panels of speakers who can help us address topics relevant to our network goals. The webinars will also serve as a forum for working groups to share the results of their work and integrate across topics with the network.
