About the 2021 Conference

On May 18, 2021, the Center for Learning and Teaching will hold its annual Faculty Summer Conference in a virtual format for the first time.

We’re carrying over the theme, Transforming the Online Student Learning Experience, from the 2020 event, which was canceled because of the pandemic. Through presentations, panels, and workshops, we’ll focus on how we can engage our online students and promote their success.
