There are many conferences around the country concerning "Teaching and Learning" topics. For those interested in attending workshops that discuss teaching issues, this page suggests some of the more interesting to attend.

Lilly International Conferences

Lilly International for 2013 is November 21-24, 2013, again held on the beautiful campus of Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.

The International Lilly Conference on College Teaching is one of the nation's most renowned conferences presenting the scholarship of teaching and learning. For over thirty years, teacher-scholars from across the U.S. and internationally have gathered annually the weekend before Thanksgiving to share innovative pedagogies and discuss questions, challenges, and insights about teaching and learning. Opportunities to meet and talk to the presenters are provided at topical breakfast, luncheon, and dinner tables, receptions, and breaks.

In past years, many deans and chief academic officers have supported the attendance of a team of their faculty at this conference, as reward and recognition for an outstanding teacher, as encouragement for a junior faculty member, or as an opportunity for the team to bring new teaching and learning ideas back to campus. Institutions planning Teaching and Learning Centers have found the Lilly Conference an excellent place to meet and "scout" some outstanding teacher-scholars.

There are also other Lilly Conferences around the country that are not as large as the Oxford event. For more information contact the CETL office or go to their website Lilly Conference .
