June 1-4, 2011
International Institute for SoTL Scholars and Mentors
Omaha, NE

This year's theme of transformational learning invites an exploration of: engaging traditional, returning, and non-traditional students in transformational ways to equip them to succeed in today's global world; engaging faculty in reflection as an agent of transformational learning; and engaging institutions of higher learning to challenge themselves to consider how "high impact" educational practices invite, require, or mandate an opportunity for transformative learning. The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) serves as a useful lens by which to examine our taken for granted assumptions and aptly frames an exploration of educational practices capable of transforming our traditional, returning, and non-traditional students learning experiences, both inside and outside the traditional classrooms and laboratories.

Lilly Conference on College and University Teaching
Washington, D.C.

The Lilly Conference on College and University Teaching – D.C. brings together faculty from a variety of disciplines and at various stages of their academic careers. Lilly Conferences on College and University Teaching and Learning anchor the annual conference on the overarching theme "Evidence-Based Learning and Teaching". This theme reflects the philosophy that our approaches to teaching and learning should be based on scholarly activity. As disciplinary approaches use scholarly work to investigate and advance knowledge, pedagogical innovation should also advance by building on the work of others.

33rd Annual Summer Institute on College Teaching
Williamsburg, VA

The Virginia Tidewater Consortium's Summer Institute on College Teaching is in its 33rd year of helping faculty at every level and discipline to become more effective teachers. Over the years hundreds of faculty have participated in the Institute and have found it very worthwhile and rewarding. The Institute is unique in that it allows faculty members the opportunity to discuss college teaching and learning in-depth with their colleagues in an open, pleasant environment. Since enrollment in the Institute is limited to a certain number, there is ample time for one-on-one discussion with the other faculty members.
