The Grassland Restoration Network is a loose affiliation of people trying to use prairie restoration (reconstruction) as a way to rebuild, conserve and sustain grassland ecosystems. Each year, we put on a workshop to share ideas, techniques, research results, and stories with other. Workshops are hosted by a different site each year, giving us the opportunity to visit a range of projects over the years.

International Symposium on Innovative Teaching and Learning website

The symposium is a two-day event focusing on teaching excellence in higher education. Through workshops, presentations, panel discussions and observations, attendees will immerse themselves in learning what it means to be a great collegiate teacher. Also included in this symposium will be a collaboration and sharing of ideas and practices about teaching and learning between professors at Jilin University, other Chinese universities and universities in the U.S.. The peer-reviewed papers and poster presentations will be included in a publication from New Prairie Press.

Those who attend will receive a certificate of participation. It is our goal that after the symposium, participants will return to their colleges and universities and share information that will ultimately make a positive impact on student learning.

Annual Conference provides a time when the K-State Research and Extension system comes together to build esprit de corps across the diversity of the workforce, carry out the business of the organization, communicate priorities and vision, celebrate accomplishments and provide for professional growth opportunities for those within the system.
