17th Annual Elon University Teaching and Learning Conference
Thu, June 10, 8:30-3:30pm CDT
Elon University welcomes university and college educators to the 17th Annual Teaching & Learning Conference on Thursday, June 10, 2021.This free, fully-virtual conference is sponsored jointly by Elon University’s Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning (CATL) and Teaching and Learning Technologies (TLT).
Conference Theme: Teaching & Learning Beyond the Pandemic
As we look beyond the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our institutions and classrooms, we envision a world that has both changed in radical ways and also still retains many longstanding challenges. Our collective and personal experiences during this past year and a half, as educators and human beings, may leave us better positioned to reimagine that future world together. In what ways might we and our students cultivate meaning, purpose, and connection that reignite our passion for teaching and learning after the widespread burnout of COVID? How can we leverage the momentum of 2020 toward racial equity to continue to iterate toward more welcoming and just courses in which historically underrepresented or otherwise disadvantaged students can truly excel? And, as climate-related disruptions become increasingly frequent, how can we leverage our recent experience to create more resilient and more sustainable courses and institutions?
Registration will be open until June 7, 2021.
