Pacific Region Learning Summit

Pacific Region Learning Summit (PRLS) is a one week conference hosted by the Educational Media Center at Leeward Community College. Each year, we offer current topics relevant in higher education as we strive to transform teaching and students' learning. We intentionally design the learning experience to be participatory with hands-on activities, facilitated discussions, and ample time to work on your own course.
