Teaching Commons > Events > Teaching & Learning Conference > 27th Annual Teaching and Learning Conference (2022)
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. The 27th Annual Teaching and Learning Conference is scheduled as an in-person event but will switch to a virtual event if COVID-19 safety protocols require it.
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 included: Student Affairs, the University-Center for Writing-based Learning (UCWbL), and Faculty Council's Committee on Learning and Teaching (COLT).
DePaul faculty and staff are encouraged to submit proposals for the 27th Annual Teaching and Learning Conference.
