Section on Teaching
The Teaching Section of ARNOVA is a community of scholars and practitioners who are committed to improving and furthering teaching and learning focused on nonprofit organizations, philanthropy, civil society and voluntary action. Our community provides a forum for networking, information and resource sharing, building teaching capacity, as well as fostering and disseminating related research. We hold a series of events in conjunction with the annual ARNOVA conference, sponsor a LinkedIn group which supports community dialogue during the year, and conduct other related activities.
ARNOVA Conference Activities
At the annual ARNOVA conference, we conduct a Teaching Section seminar on the Wednesday evening before the conference, a lunch round table on Thursday, as well as two sessions during the course of the conference. We also conduct our annual business meeting at the conference where we review our recent accomplishments and plan for the upcoming year and beyond.
