AUC Between Worlds Call for Participation

We’re really excited to announce the AUC’s new Between Worlds series, providing a new avenue for community members to share their experience and expertise between and beyond our existing “world” events, which have been on hiatus since early 2020 due to COVID-19. While we do intend to return to face-to-face events when it’s safe to do so, we’ve created Between Worlds as a new way to share experiences with Apple’s platforms in learning contexts.
