Conference Schedule (Tentative)
Our schedule has been developed so that on Friday, participants will be introduced to scientific research, concepts, strategies, and technological tools that can enable us to actively engage students in their own learning, and on Saturday, participants will consider how Scholarship of Teaching and Learning research methods can enable them to design practical studies focused on the application and assessment of these various approaches. The program schedule has also been created to foster discussion of how the ideas from each keynote speaker can be taken back to our own institutions. Thus, you will note that each speaker will follow his presentation with extended opportunities for the audience to process key concepts and raise questions in a discussion/workshop environment.
