The Call for Proposals is now open for the 15th annual University of Waterloo Teaching and Learning Conference taking place on May 2, 2024. Last year saw over 500 faculty members, staff, and students gather in-person online to learn from and with one another around the theme of “Teaching and Learning with Kindness and Care”. Our 2024 conference theme is “Sparking and Sustaining Engagement”. We are excited to welcome Jessie Moore, Professor of English and Director of the Center for Engaged Learning at Elon University as our keynote speaker. Additionally, the Igniting Our Practice plenary session will feature two inspirational University of Waterloo instructors, who will demonstrate a successful instructional approach to showcase some of the excellent teaching being done on our campus.
We invite you to submit proposals for presentations, panel discussions, workshops, poster presentations, and items for a teaching and learning showcase, that share your practices and research which explore engaging learning and teaching practices. Engagement is crucial for our students’ success and acts as a feedback loop: instructor engagement encourages student engagement, which in turn motivates faculty to continue to invest their energy into designing stimulating learning activities. For a second time this year, we also invite proposals for pre-conference workshops which will be held online prior to the conference on Wednesday, May 1, 2024.
The deadline for proposals is January 22, 2024. To read the full Call for Proposals and learn more about the conference, please visit the University of Waterloo Teaching and Learning Conference website.
