Richard Apgar was one of 18 participants, and he presented a paper entitled "Walking to New Worlds: Pedagogical Travels and a Pedagogy of Travel." Ariana Orozco participated in the "Teaching German History in the 21st Century" Seminar, where she workshopped her syllabus for German Culture and Civilization: From the Romans to World War I.
