Conference on Postsecondary Learning and Teaching

Are you working on an idea to improve teaching and learning? We encourage potential presenters from all institutions to submit proposals. The theme of the 2019 Conference on Postsecondary Learning and Teaching will be announced shortly, and the call for proposals will go out in late September.

In the meantime, we recommend the following article, “Getting the most out of academic conference attendance: Five key strategies” by Bailey J. Sousa and Alexander M. Clark.
