Bringing Theory to Practice will again be participating in AAC&U’s Annual Meeting, to take place January 23–26, 2019, at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta, 265 Peachtree St. NE, Atlanta, GA 30303.
Unlike previous years, when we have hosted panel discussions, this year our three presentations will be organized in a “fishbowl” format:
1. “Student Well-Being and the Equity Imperative”
2. “Work and the Purposes of College”
3. “Building the Community of Change: An Open Call to Envision the Future of
Bringing Theory to Practice (and Higher Education)”
An inaugural circle of four or five discussants will unpack the theme in conversation for twenty to thirty minutes, with the surrounding audience “overhearing” their dialogue. Then, we will invite individual audience members to tap into the fishbowl, replacing discussants and offering their own questions, comments, disagreements, and stories. We hope the resulting conversation will be wide-ranging, expansive, and also focused, with room for disagreement and unexpected connections and insights.

BTtoP also will be hosting an informal reception on Thursday evening, January 24, 2019.
We welcome friends and colleagues to attend for the opportunity to engage in discussion, share ideas, and connect with each other and the BTtoP team on current and future directions of our work together. Look for our Save the Date in your email soon—if you are not signed up for our mailing list you can do so on our website homepage: www.bttop.org. We hope to see you there!
