Innovation in Teaching Conference
The Innovation in Teaching Conference, (ITC) promotes novel and emerging teaching practices among educators. The ITC serves as a community in which attendees share and take away ideas that address the “what’s next” in education and challenge us to strive for professional excellence.
Education undeniably changed as a result of the Coronavirus global pandemic, but crisis and change can bring opportunities and transformation. This year, we hope to collect stories from our community of educators to share insights, inspirations and discoveries. Our intent is to capture a snapshot of the diverse experiences and observations of what was learned during an abrupt transition to online instruction.
As a response to the pandemic and as a safety measure to our community, we have decided to deviate from our traditional conference format to a ‘Teaching during the Pandemic’ curated video collection. Access to the collection will be free and open to the public. Presenters will schedule a zoom session with us, and we will record a 10-15-minute video of your story that will be available through our conference website starting Friday, October 23, 2020. Share your experiences with COVID-19 and what you’ve learned about teaching and learning with our community!
We partner with the UGA Center for Teaching and Learning to honor the annual Emerging SoTL Scholar Awards .
The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) supports building a strong teaching community that focuses on improving student learning through various initiatives, including the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL). To facilitate this goal, CTL will recognize up to three presenters with the Emerging SotL Scholar Award and support them in their development toward publication and presentation.
