DePaul faculty and staff are encouraged to attend the 26th Annual Teaching and Learning Conference. Each year, the conference brings together roughly 300 faculty, staff, and other members of the DePaul community to share knowledge, promote effective teaching practices, and improve student learning experiences across the University.
This year’s event will span two days. Each day will start with a keynote address and be followed by faculty-led concurrent sessions.
Sessions will focus on helping attendees better understand the potential impact of the pandemic on the way they view others and build social connections, the way they view themselves and their roles as educators, and the future of higher education at large.
The conference is sponsored by DePaul’s Center for Teaching and Learning with financial assistance from the Quality of Instruction Council (QIC). Key contributors to the planning of the conference include: Student Affairs, the University-Center for Writing-based Learning (UCWbL), and Faculty Council's Committee on Learning and Teaching (COLT).
