Town Halls

Please note: All sessions are listed in Eastern Daylight Time (EDT = UTC-4:00)

Town Hall Meetings are similar to panel discussions, but with a ‘flipped’ model. That is, the goal of a town hall is to gather suggestions and feedback from the audience rather than from the panelists.

Practicing with the Instructional Practices Guide

Thursday, August 4, 8:30 a.m. - 9:20 a.m., Salon C

Practice is imperfect (at first)! Has an idea in the MAA Instructional Practices Guide worked for you? Unsure of which ideas to try? Have an idea that belongs in the Guide? All imperfect people and ideas are welcome to this Town Hall, where we’ll share stories of practice with practices, and how to make them more perfect.

Supporting the Advancement of Latinx and Hispanic Mathematicians

Saturday, August 6, 11:00 a.m. - 11:50 a.m., Salon C

This town hall discussion aims to identify ways that professional societies can support Latinx and Hispanic mathematicians at every career stage, from undergraduate students to professors. Small round tables will be used to facilitate discussion, and a summary will be shared with the MAA leadership to create programming and allocate resources with this aim in mind.
