  24. I omitted many of the details from the event and the student accounts, in part because they wouldn’t translate well to twitter. The passion of the participating students and the impact on their studies was striking but as impressive were the structures and systems in place to support their expereinces and ensure that they brought their experiences back for their wider communities, including UWO.
  25. I was unfortunately unable to attend the SOTL scholars luncheon but I will add a link to the podcast when it’s available.
  26. The next event on Wednesday afternoon was the Community Connection Extravaganza – perhaps the centerpiece of the Summit.
