Teaching and Learning Conference 2019
St. John's, NL
CITL is excited to host Memorial University's Teaching and Learning Conference 2019.
This year, the conference will focus on Memorial’s renewed Teaching and Learning Framework 2023. Placing the student educational experience at its core, the renewed TLF calls on staff, educators and academic leaders to increase collaborative and interdisciplinary initiatives that enable student accessibility, deepen learners’ engagement and facilitate student success.
As such, the theme for this year's conference is Strengthening Our Educational Experience: Accessibility, Engagement and Student Success.
A primary goal of the conference is for faculty, instructors, staff, students and alumni to think about ways to strengthen our educational experience with respect to accessibility, engagement and student success.
All educators, staff, students and alumni from any of Memorial’s campuses with an interest in teaching and learning are welcome to attend.

Fireside chat with students - Hear from a panel of undergrad and grad students about their experience as learners at Memorial.
Welcome to my classroom - Take a class from one of three recipients of Memorial’s President’s Award for Distinguished Teaching, and get inspired to use their approach in your own instructional practice.
"Unconference" - A participant-driven idea exchange on how we can collaborate as an institution, across campuses, disciplines and units, to strengthen our educational experience; followed by breakout sessions that will focus on bringing the top four ideas to fruition.
