North Central AAAE Research Conference


National Conference on Learner-Centered Teaching

September 27 - September 29, 2023

South Dakota University

Brookings, SD


An ongoing relationship: This collaborative partnership combines three groups into one integrated conference: the 2023 North Central AAAE Conference, the National Conference on Learner-Centered Teaching (NCLCT), and the M.E.N.T.O.R. Convening.

NCLCT and M.E.N.T.O.R. Project is largely composed of Historically Black Colleges & Universities. This will be a great opportunity to create and explore new partnerships in the broadly defined field of agricultural education.
