You are invited to IA's Teaching and Learning Circle webinar with artist, educator, and agitator Robin Hill.

Hill will explore the collaborative work she has enacted in her professional practice as well as the work of her students and ideas of site-specificity and sense perception. She will be joined by guest speaker Cathy Koehler, resident Director of the McLaughlin Reserve, an important wilderness research resource for Hill's teaching and practice alike.

Participants will be invited to engage with presenters and these critical topics during the session. Registrants are welcome to share questions they would like to discuss at the time of registration.
