Teaching Learning and Student Success Conference.


The Teaching Learning and Student Success conference one of the things that we at the center for teaching and learning are most proud of. It’s a way for like minded people and professors to share their knowledge and make us all better teachers and people every year. 2024 marks the 8th annual conference and the first one back in person after the events of the past two years. We’re glad to be back and hope to continue the tradition for years to come.

As always CTL is an active central hub for faculty to discover resources to increase skills in the five core instructional methods: Active Learning, Applied Learning, Authentic Learning, Inclusive Pedagogy/ Andragogy, Student centered Learning
