Thank you to the session presenters and attendees of the 2021 International Perspectives on University Teaching and Learning Symposium in Orlando, FL and online. In a difficult year, we are gratified that so many of you were able to travel and be part of a community of like-minded scholars seeking to internationalize our efforts and solutions for enhanced teaching and learning. The Auburn University Office of International Programs appreciated your thoughts and experiences, and we took away a number of practices and ideas that we can immediately implement in our classrooms. We look forward to 2023 when we can meet again and continue this dialogue at Disney. We hope to see you join us once again.
