Conference Highlights

In addition to the conference keynote, choose from among 18
1-hour concurrent sessions led by presenters from across the university focused on three tracks:

  • Great Place to Learn (Track L): This track highlights learning for our students in the teaching context. How can we merge research and theory to inform and enhance our instructional practices? How does learning theory and evidence translate into teaching practices?
  • Great Place to Work (Track W): This track seeks to showcase and demonstrate teaching practices that comprise the work of teaching. What emerging technologies might we use with our students? How can we learn from the success strategies of others and apply them in our work?
  • Great Place to Invest (Track I): This track examines what investment means for teaching. How do we invest our work within and in support of the larger community? How do we explore and understand how to invest in our journey toward a teaching- focused university? What teaching innovations are UofL faculty are implementing right now?

Select from among sessions related to creating the context of learning, documenting teaching excellence, attracting and retaining students in STEM, spaced retrieval for long-term learning retention, emotional intelligence, competency-based education, and much more.

During the Celebration luncheon, join us as we recognize the 2017-18 Faculty Favorite Award nominees.

End your day by attending our closing reception to network and exchange ideas gathered from the conference.

Come ready to share your ideas, questions, and take the next steps in your teaching journey!

Wondering if You Should Attend?

The Celebration of Teaching and Learning is UofL’s annual teaching conference open to all UofL faculty, staff, and graduate students. This special event celebrates and advances teaching excellence at UofL. Here is what some attendees of last year’s conference had to say about the experience:

“I always appreciate the opportunity to advance my knowledge and skills as a teacher. The Celebration facilitates an environment that gives me the space and time to reflect on my teaching and the opportunity to explore new teaching techniques.”

“Overall, the event was wonderful and I’ve already encouraged all my colleagues to attend next year.”
