We look forward to seeing you tomorrow at the 8th Annual Teaching and Learning Conference at Elon University. Doors open at 8:00 am and the conference ends at 4:25 pm, with lunch included. This annual event is jointly sponsored by Elon’s Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning (CATL) and Teaching and Learning Technologies (TLT).

With Thresholds to Learning as our theme, the conference embraces new ways of looking at student learning and our own roles as instructors and mentors. Ray Land, an internationally known expert and scholar, will introduce the pedagogical framework for Threshold Concepts, followed by workshops and presentations on a variety of innovative teaching methods and effective applications of technology that contribute to engaged learning environments. The conference concludes with Jim Groom’s lively presentation about using open web resources to expand learning beyond traditional campus boundaries.
Our goals are to provide you with strategies and resources that you can use immediately, to encourage new ways of thinking about teaching and learning, and to help inspire you as you begin the new academic year.
