Teaching and Learning Conference
May 1-2, 2024
Putting Innovation into Practice
What does it mean to be innovative in teaching and learning?
It means making changes to classrooms and learning spaces. It is about looking at new ways to assess students in their learning. It requires exploring the effectiveness of teaching approaches and sharing what you’ve learned. It is about getting student feedback and making adjustments in your approach.
Innovation in teaching and learning is all the above, and more.
Memorial University has made innovation a priority in its strategic plan, Transforming Our Horizons. Specifically, the plan asks us to expand experiential and community-based learning; enhance the accessibility and flexibility of programs; enable cutting-edge pedagogies and technology-enabled learning; and mobilize diverse multi-campus opportunities to be interdisciplinary collaborators.
These ideas are big, and require the collective power of our community. One key requirement to innovation is connection. We need to connect with each other to share ideas, challenges, perspectives and knowledge in order to create new ways of teaching, learning, doing, knowing and being.
Connect, share, learn
The Teaching and Learning Conference 2024 is your opportunity to connect, share and learn. This year marks a shift in the focus of this event; we must acknowledge our need for the time and space to be innovative in teaching and learning at Memorial.
Our theme this year is Putting Innovation into Practice.
Join us in-person on the St. John's campus, May 1 and 2! If you cannot attend in-person, most sessions will also be streamed via WebEx; details will be provided in the full program in the winter 2024 semester.
