There are many opportunities for faculty members to learn more about teaching and learning by participating in local and national teaching conferences.
Are there any campus-wide conferences for DU faculty members?
The OTL invites faculty members and expert guest speakers to come together to network and share their teaching strategies during our campus-wide conferences.
Reinventing the Classroom: New Terms of Engagement (2011 Provost Conference)
This conference explored ways in which what we know about how people learn and the new tools can be used together to improve teaching and learning, and in particular, to free up classroom time for things other than conveying information via lectures. Candace Thille, the Director of the Open Learning Initiative (OLI) at Carnegie Mellon University, was the keynote speaker.
Education and the New Media Conference (2010 OTL Conference)
During the conference, DU faculty, staff, students, and renowned new media expert, Michael Wesch, explored innovative and effective ways to integrate new media into teaching and research.
What are the benefits of attending a conference?
- connect and network with colleagues
- learn about latest pedagogical techniques
- learn about effective use of technology
