After a week of teaching, one comes away exhausted, but inspired and exhilarated - by the students’ passion for learning, collaborative mindset, and innovative approaches to a complex topic. Their optimism is infectious, and their courage is humbling when one learns of the obstacles many have confronted to even get to IACA.
