We partner with the UGA Center for Teaching and Learning to honor the annual Emerging SoTL Scholar Awards.
The Innovation in Teaching Conference highlights innovative teaching practices among educators. During this one-day conference, we ask attendees to share and take away ideas that address the "what's next" that pushes us to strive for excellence in education.
Our presentation format gives you access to amazing new and evolving educational practices across diverse settings. Past presentations covered topics such as creating lessons without textbooks, using digital tools to increase student engagement, ways to introduce active learning into a classroom, or educational access. We encourage our presenters to think outside the box when sharing their innovative ideas, and as a result, these presentations push the envelope of what's possible in education.
Our sessions are designed to maximize your exposure to new teaching practices. Each session packs a lot of information and tools into "bundles" of four 10-minute presentations that you can take back to your classoom and share with your colleagues. The conference schedule also incorporates time to meet other innovative educators who you can collaborate with for years to come.
