UMSL Focus on Teaching & Technology Conference
The Focus on Teaching & Technology Conference is being hosted, virtually, by the University of Missouri St. Louis’ Center for Teaching and Learning on 09/29 – 09/20.
The time commitment varies, depending on which keynote and breakout sessions you attend. The conference planners also record many of the sessions, in case you are unable to be there at the scheduled time.
“This conference is an amazing opportunity for faculty, higher education administrators, and other staff involved in course and curriculum development or academic technology support to come together to share and learn collaboratively. The conference offers a dynamic keynote speaker, faculty innovation idea-sharing, technology workshops, and vendor presentations.”
This year’s keynote, is Dr. Bryan Dewsbury, a phenomenal STEM educator and researcher. “Dr. Dewsbury is a Gardner Institute Fellow and the Principal Investigator for the SEAS (Science Education And Research) program. His research is focused on the social context of teaching and learning, including questions relating to identity constructs, bias, relationships, and the effects of those variables on learning in students (from K-PhD). Dr. Dewsbury has developed a number of teaching approaches and programs relating to social belonging and higher education and draws inspiration from the possibilities of education as a force for intellectual liberation.”
IFD will register and pay the conference fee for the first 10 faculty or academic staff who indicate your interest and how you will spread the learning in our community, afterward, via the registration link for this event listing.
Do not register via the main FTTC website, or IFD will be unable to reimburse you for your conference registration (even if you are among the first 15 people to respond).
Note: this is a multi-day event.
