13th Annual Teaching and Learning Conference at Elon University

Elon University welcomes area university and college educators to the 13th Annual Teaching and Learning Conference on August 18, 2016. The conference is jointly sponsored by Elon’s Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning (CATL) and Teaching and Learning Technologies (TLT).

Conference Theme

This year’s conference theme, Evidence of Learning, will be reflected in sessions that explore various strategies for creating engaged learning experiences—experiences and pedagogies that produce significant learning and make a lasting impact.

Opening Plenary Speaker

We are pleased to announce that our opening plenary speaker for the 13th Annual Teaching & Learning Conference will be Dr. Dan Willingham, Professor of Psychology at the University of Virginia. His research investigates learning, memory, attention, and the application of cognitive psychology to college and K-12 education.
