Student-Centered Teaching and Learning

The conference theme, “Student-Centered Teaching and Learning,” encourages us to examine and promote those strategies for teaching and learning that engage students through 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 (i.e. instruction).  The conference will hold an opening keynote to focus on student-centered 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

  • Ways to incorporate diversity into teaching and learning

We welcome submissions by individuals and groups from the Commonwealth, across the country, and around the world. Submissions are due by Feburary 1, 2018.
