1st International Symposium on Innovative Teaching and Learning (September 26 - 27, 2017)

What is the International Symposium on Innovative Teaching and Learning?

Our Symposium is a two-day meeting focusing on teaching excellence in higher education.  Through workshops, presentations, panel discussions, and observations, attendees will immerse themselves in learning what it means to be a great collegiate teacher.  Also included in this Symposium will be a collaboration and sharing of ideas and practices about teaching and learning between professors in Chinese Universities and universities in the US.  The peer-reviewed papers and poster presentations will be included in a publication from New Prairie Press.  Those who attend will receive a certificate of participation.  It is our goal that after the symposium, participants will return to their colleges and universities and share information which will ultimately make a positive impact on student learning.
