Teaching and Learning Conference 2020

St. John's, NL
April 29-30, 2020

CITL is excited to host Memorial University's Teaching and Learning Conference 2020.

People crave personal and meaningful interactions in their learning and their lives. By developing enriching relationships with students, peers and members of our communities, we can create real, human connections that make a positive, lasting impact on learning experiences at Memorial University.

Our Teaching and Learning Conference 2020 will hone in on these foundational ideas with the theme, Getting to the Heart of Learning.

As an institution, we have expressed a vision for teaching and learning in which Memorial connects learners and educators to each other, the community and the world (TLF 2023). It is time we focus on understanding how to develop meaningful connections, and the impact they make individually and collectively.

Educators, researchers, staff, graduate students and alumni are invited to come together and explore how we can create and enable meaningful connections for engaged learning.

  • What evidence-based strategies can we use to initiate relationship-building in the classroom (face-to-face or online)?
  • How can we cultivate meaningful interactions between learners, educators and our communities?
  • What role can ‘inclusive teaching’ play in making connections?
  • How can we assess the connections we make and their impact on learning?

Registration and the call for proposals will open in January 2020.
