Faculty Conference on Teaching Excellence at Temple University


19th Annual Faculty Conference on Teaching Excellence, Temple University, January 6-7, 2021

This regional conference on issues pertaining to learning-centered teaching in higher education provides a great forum to enrich your teaching practices and exchange ideas with colleagues; the event has been well received by Villanova faculty who attended in the past. The sessions are practice-based, research-supported and provide first-rate ideas for enriching the teaching and learning process.

This year’s conference features Keynote Speaker Dr. Kevin Gannon, Director of the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning and Professor of History at Grand View University in Des Moines, Iowa and Dr. Sarah Rose Cavanagh, Plenary Speaker. Sarah Rose Cavanagh is a psychologist, professor, and Associate Director of the D’Amour Center for Teaching Excellence at Assumption University. Link to program.

Opportunity: VITAL is pleased to support a team of up to eight faculty colleagues across disciplines to attend the conference; VITAL will pay your conference registration fee for either day; all other expenses will be your responsibility. Faculty who were sponsored in the past two years are not eligible to apply. Please note. Sponsorship applies to either day not both.

Caveat: Sponsored faculty members are asked to share with the Villanova teaching community a conference take-away, that is to demonstrate a teaching practice that supports student learning as part of a VITAL event, e.g., Teaching and Learning Strategies Program, May 2021, Food for Thought lunch discussions during spring 2021. 

If you are interested in attending this regional conference on either 1/6 or 1/7, please send email to Gabriele Bauer, by November 20 at noon at the latest.
