Special Interest Groups

SIGMM members with Leslie Fisher

Special Interest Groups provide members who have similar interests a way to share information and learn from one another. Consider joining one of these SIGs that are devoted to providing personalized learning opportunities. SIGs also host Preconference half-day or full-day workshops for the MACUL annual conference designed to give participants a chance to take a deep dive into the tool or content being covered.
