PMIG 2023

Dear Friends,

Registration is open!  We hope you can join us for the P-MIG 2023 conference in person in Eugene, Oregon on August 4-5.   Agenda is below. 

View full advertisement flyer here.

The conference will informally begin Thursday August 3rd with a dinner at a local brewery.  The main meeting has been extended to two full days (from 1.5 days previously) running 8a-5p on Friday and Saturday August 4-5. Sunday will be a travel day, but with some local activities coordinated for any "stragglers".

A local hotel has rooms blocked off. Lodging information is provided upon registration using the link below. The hotel is within walking distance of all conference activities.

Flights into Eugene’s airport (EUG) are operated by Allegiant, Alaskan, American, Delta, and United. Shuttles, taxis, Uber, and Lyft are available to get from the airport to the hotel (10 miles, 20 minutes).

All participants are invited to deliver a five-minute talk about one of their teaching innovations and/or pedagogical research. The talks will help to form the basis of ensuing group discussions.  We will be sending out a call for abstracts for folks who want to present, with a July 1st abstract deadline.

We are doing fund raising so that we can offer the meeting and most meals free of charge to early registrants. Please join us by registering here.

Pre-Register by June 1st to get a swag bag! Registration closes on July 15th.

Kind Regards,
John Halliwill, Local Conference Host 
Michelle French, Chair, Conference Committee
Erica Wehrwein, P-MIG Director
All participants encouraged to submit abstracts by July 1 for 5 min talks* related to topics on the schedule.
