LDL Connects 2022 was a success! Looking forward to what comes next!

The LDL Connects in-person gathering at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign campus for Learning Design and Leadership graduate students and alumni was a wonderful opportunity to connect and make progress on your milestones.
