The Teaching Professor Conference

May 30 – June 1, 2014 • Boston, Massachusetts
For those who are passionate about the art and science of teaching, The Teaching Professor Conference, now in its eleventh year, is a three-day conference dedicated to excellence in pedagogy. It brings together hundreds of faculty members from campuses nationally and internationally to:

  • Explore the newest ideas in teaching and learning
  • Hear the latest research
  • Discuss the state of today’s changing classroom
  • Network with likeminded individuals who care about teaching and learning

This conference does not focus on a specific discipline. Instead it is a gathering of teachers who are excited about teaching. The content is hands-on, practical, and applicable, so that you can implement what you learn right away.

We’ve brought back top-rated presenters and added important new voices as well. All of them are ready to share the latest ideas and insights on effective pedagogy.

In a full slate of presentations and workshops, you’ll examine cutting-edge research, discuss critical issues, and look in-depth at topics including:

  • Active learning
  • Effective engagement strategies
  • Critical thinking
  • Collaborative learning
  • Teaching diverse student populations
  • Student performance and motivation
  • Teaching with technology
  • Faculty development
  • Much, much more

And of course, you’ll learn plenty outside the presentations and workshops by sharing ideas and experiences with colleagues from other campuses. It’s a great opportunity to network and collaborate.

Expect lively discussion, spirited debate, and a rewarding exchange of ideas throughout all three days. You can count on leaving the conference informed, inspired, and brimming with ideas you can put to work in your classroom right away. REGISTER HERE

We look forward to see you in Boston, Massachusetts May 30 – June 1, 2014.
