Teaching and Learning Confrences


There are a variety of teaching and learning conferences available to faculty, but it can sometimes be difficult to know where to begin. Thanks to the contribution by LSC-M HistoryProfessor William Morgan during Spring 2022, the process of locating available conferences is much easier. The conferences are divided by ongoing webinars, national conferences on higher education teaching and learning, conferences centered on instructional technology, and conferences on multiculturalism. In addition, Elon and Kennesaw State Universities have curated a list of teaching conferences as well. If you know of a conference or webinar series that we should add to our collection, please message
