On Friday, May 17, DePaul will host the 2019 Teaching and Learning Conference​. Faculty and staff are invited to join colleagues for a day of reflection and tangible takeaways. The theme of this year's conference is "Better Together: Creating Inclusive Learning Environments." Sessions will run all day and participants should feel free to come and go as they please. The event is free and RSVPs are requested.

This year's keynote address and breakout sessions will encourage attendees to reflect on DePaul's students' diversity and how to account for it in teaching practices as we strive to create learning communities that are both welcoming and academically challenging. Following the keynote by Michele DiPietro, co-author of "How Learning Works: 7 Research-Based Principles for Smart Teaching," more than 30 faculty and staff will lead presentations and discussions on topics including: 
  • Developing assignments for a global classroom
  • Negotiating race and privilege in the classroom
  • Creating an inclusive syllabus 
  • Unlearning implicit bias 
  • Inclusivity and oral communication in the classroom

“There’s always a great spirit of collaboration, openness and a passion for the power of great teaching at the conference," says Daniel Stanford, director of faculty development and an organizer of the conference. "Attendees tell us year after year they leave feeling inspired and recharged.”
