Lilly Conferences on College and University Teaching and Learning

October 17-20, 2013—Traverse City, MI - PLEASE NOTE CHANGE IN DATES

For 33 years, Lilly Conferences on College and University Teaching and Learning have provided opportunities for the presentation of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning.  This interdisciplinary teaching conference targets faculty and administrators.  Participants come from across the United States and abroad; participants represent many disciplines and represent various stages in academic careers ranging from post-doctoral positions, adjunct faculty, new faculty, mid-career faculty, seasoned faculty, and even emeritus faculty and administrators.

The conference is centered on the theme “Evidence-Based Teaching and Learning”.  The conference offers a dynamic program across three and one-half days.  We do not offer preconference workshops instead we offer a variety of sessions so that you can match your learning preference to the presentations offered. Participants may attend presentations formatted as 100-minute workshops, concurrent 60-minute sessions or 40-minute presentations, 20-minute discussions, traditional plenary addresses, and a poster session.  Conference presentations are selected through a blind peer-review process.

Throughout the conference, participants are given the opportunity to exchange ideas, build a repertoire of take-home skills that can be put to use immediately, as well as network with colleagues.

2013 Plenary Speakers:

  • Keith Whittington – Rochester Institute of Technology
  • Todd Zakrajsek – University of North Carolina Chapel Hill
