Innovations in Teaching and Learning
The conference theme, “Innovations in Teaching and Learning,” encourages us to examine and promote those strategies for teaching and learning that engage new and forward-thinking approaches.
Do you have an exceptional strategy to share with an audience of instructors seeking to excel? Do you have a new theory or practice that might enhance teaching and learning, faculty development, or educational practices at your institution and beyond? Presenters are encouraged to engage their audience for approximately 45 minutes through a demonstration, so preference will be given to those submissions that specify how this engagement will be provided. The conference will hold an opening plenary session to focus on innovations in teaching and learning.
Threads might include but are not limited to:
High-Impact Educational Practices
Use of technology to enhance teaching and learning
Creative instructional techniques that engage students in learning, especially deep learning
Innovative faculty development initiatives, programs, and processes
New ways to use Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) to enhance teaching and learning

Journal of Faculty Development - Special Section on Innovations in Faculty Development
September 2017 Issue
Academic institutions across the country and internationally have considered the role of innovation in faculty development initiatives. From faculty recruitment to campus programming and technology, institutions are thinking in new ways about how we design and implement faculty development to enhance teaching and learning. The special section of the Journal of Faculty Development invites submissions focused on innovations in faculty development that contribute to, enhance, or complicate teaching and learning. Threads to consider include:
- Ways in which innovations in teaching and learning contribute to faculty development efforts
- The multiple ways we define innovation for faculty development
- Innovative models of faculty development that contribute to teaching and learning
- Ways in which technology and media offer new affordances for innovation
- Complications associated with innovation and how we might address them
Please indicate your interest in having your work reviewed for the special section when you submit your Pedagogicon proposal. Read more about the Journal of Faculty Development.
