Organizers invite proposals until February 28 from instructors, academic administrators, staff and students for the seventh annual University of Windsor-Oakland University Teaching and Learning Conference, May 1 and 2 on the UWindsor campus.
The conference, with a theme of “On the Verge: Debating the Future of University Teaching,” invites attendees to explore varied and contrasting visions of how universities will change, and grapple with scenarios—both radical and conservative—about the future of teaching and learning.
It will feature workshops, concurrent sessions and posters on these topics:
- the future of how: modes, media, and meaning in an era of ubiquitous information;
- the future of why: factors that determine new directions and the interests that our institutions serve;
- the future of where: creating space for learning -- on campus, in the work place, at home;
- the future of who: learners, traditional and non-traditional; communities; networks; markets, education systems, and the role of government;
- the future of when: teaching at the speed of change; new patterns and pathways to credentialing and re-schooling.
