Organizers of the ninth annual University of Windsor and Oakland University Teaching and Learning Conference invite proposals for workshops, presentations, and posters.
Hundreds of instructors and students from institutions across Canada and the United States are expected to attend the event, hosted this year at the University of Windsor, May 12 (pre-conference) and May 13-14 (full conference).
This year’s conference will celebrate and recognize educational leadership on the ground: exploring the kinds of projects educators undertake every day, as they try to improve teaching and learning in their own contexts and communities. Participants will be able to network with emerging and established educational leaders, and to learn knowledge and skills that can help them carry out successful leadership projects.
“The conference is free to all University of Windsor and Oakland University faculty, librarians, staff, and students,” says Erika Kustra, acting director of the Centre for Teaching and Learning. “This is a perfect opportunity to share interesting ideas. We invite proposals about projects and initiatives that have inspired change in teaching and learning.”
Proposals are welcome from instructors, academic administrators, staff, and students until February 27. Read the call for proposals: http://cleo.uwindsor.ca/oakland/callforproposals.php.
In anticipation of the conference, the centre will offer a workshop on February 23 to explore educational leadership, and how one is or can be an educational leader through innovation and best practices in the classroom and beyond.
