Wakonse Conference on College Teaching
Since 1990, more than 2,000 faculty members from many colleges and universities have attended the Wakonse Conference on College Teaching. K-State started attending the conference in 2002 and more than 60 faculty members have attended. Their attendance was supported by the Provost Office, the Teaching & Learning Center and endorsed by the Faculty Exchange for Teaching Excellence.
The major goal of the Wakonse Conference is to provide inspiration and support for college teaching. During the conference, college teachers share teaching strategies and methods in a rustic environment of Camp Miniwanca, which is near Shelby, Mich. A major focus of the conference relates to pedagogical issues, but participants also discuss many other issues of academic cultures. The conference truly promotes development of junior and senior faculty and has attained national prominence. More information about the Wakonse Conference on College Teaching can be found on its website.
