Registration open for 2018 Teaching and Learning Symposium

Registration is now open for the 2018 Teaching and Learning Symposium. All events will be held on Thursday, May 17 at Union South. The theme for this year’s symposium is “Connecting to Our Students.”

The event will feature a keynote by Timothy Renick, Senior Vice President for Student Success and Professor of Religious Studies at Georgia State University, titled “Connecting at Scale: Leveraging Data and Analytics to Transform Student Outcomes.” Since 2008, he has directed the student success and enrollment efforts of the university, overseeing among the fastest improving graduation rates in the nation and the elimination of all achievement gaps based on students’ race, ethnicity or income level. He was named one of 2016’s Most Innovative People in Higher Education by Washington Monthly and was the recipient of the 2015-16 Award for National Leadership in Student Success Innovation from the University Innovation Alliance. He currently is principal investigator for a $9 million U.S. Department of Education grant to study the impact of predictive-analytics-based advisement on ten-thousand low-income and first-generation students nationally.

Participants will also have the opportunity to attend a variety of exciting sessions and posters that highlight active learning approaches, pedagogical and curricular innovations, and high-impact practices.

Please join more than 500 faculty, instructional staff and graduate students as we celebrate another year of teaching and learning excellence. Register now by visiting:
