Digital conference poster: Learning Through Assessment

We are pleased to let you know that registration is open for our 12th annual University of Waterloo Teaching and Learning Conference taking place on April 29, 2020. Last year saw over 400 faculty members, staff, and students gather to learn from and with one another around the theme of inclusivity and diversity in our learners and approaches to teaching. Our 2020 conference theme is Learning through Assessment. We are excited to welcome Kay Sambell, Professor of Higher Education Pedagogy at Edinburgh Napier University, and Sally Brown, Emerita Professor at Leeds Beckett University, as our keynote speakers, as well as Tamara Maciel (Program Director, School of Anatomy) and Dr. Geoff Hayes (Associate Professor, Department of History) from Waterloo, who will each recreate a successful instructional approach in our Igniting Our Practice plenary session, which showcases some of the excellent teaching being done on our campus. The registration deadline is Wednesday, April 8, 2020.
