The NCPN conference is one of the best professional development opportunities in the country, offering breakouts, a full day of preconference workshops, keynote speakers, networking opportunities, and an exhibit hall showcasing the latest products and services to support your Career Pathways programs.

During this workshop, participants explore ways to build students’ innovation mindsets and collaboration skills by integrating design-thinking techniques into the learning experience. Participants also learn how to enhance students’ creative habits through deep user empathy, radical collaboration, and rapid experimentation to problem solving. The workshop focuses on the most common step-by-step innovation framework faculty can apply to the creation of content, activities, and student services.

In recent years, we have seen a significant change in public attitudes in support of climate science and sustainability. At the same time, whether it is about food safety, endangered species or protection of waterways, we continue to see the latest science being pushed aside in public discourse. As we embark into a new decade, ensuring that ecology is relevant to all students is vital so that we can prepare all students to be ecology-literate.

The ecological sciences are well positioned to serve as bridges between research, life experiences, and societal needs. Join us to share and learn practical strategies in Pushing Past Barriers: Ecological Science for All.
