A spring tradition at DePaul for more than 25 years, faculty and instructional staff are invited to share what works in the classroom with their peers at this year's Teaching and Learning Conference on May 13.
The conference brings together hundreds of faculty, staff and other members of the DePaul community to share knowledge, promote effective teaching practices and improve student learning experiences across the university. The event is free and open to all DePaul faculty, staff and students.
The 2022 event features keynote speaker Bettina Love, who will deliver her talk, "We gon' be alright, but that ain't alright: Abolitionist teaching and the pursuit of educational freedom." Love is an award-winning author and the Athletic Association Endowed Professor at the University of Georgia. Her writing, research, teaching and educational advocacy work meet at the intersection of education reform, anti-racism, carceral studies, abolition, and Black joy.

Please note, this year's program is scheduled as an in-person event but will switch to a virtual event if necessitated by COVID-19 safety protocols.

Key contributors to the planning of the conference include Student Affairs, the University-Center for Writing-based Learning and Faculty Council's Committee on Learning and Teaching.
