Ever Want to Jump Off A Cliff?

On Day 2 of #ucet17 you're going to find out just what happens when you jump off a cliff… with a wing suit and a parachute.

Join us Friday morning, March 17th, when our second keynote speaker, Steph Davis, will teach us what it's like to fly. In our current educational landscape change is coming at us faster than we can prepare, maybe as fast as the approaching ground when freefalling from dizzying heights.  As a result we as educators must learn to try new things, take risks, and confront the fear of failure.  During Steph's presentation we will learn how she handles fear, manages risk, and accepts the changes that life brings us all along the way.

sd-slide4-wsjumpSteph Davis is a resident of Moab, Utah and an accomplished rock climber – she is the second woman to free climb El Capitan in one day, and the first woman to free solo The North Face of Castleton Tower outside Moab.  Climbing is only one way she's famous.  When it comes to getting down from her ascents she doesn't take the easy way, instead she has become a world famous base jumper and wing suit flyer travelling the world to create amazing videos, commericials, and assist stunt teams filming scenes for major motion pictures through her company Climb2Fly Productions.
