Advancing Teaching & Learning Conference

The 19th Annual Advancing Teaching and Learning Conference at Texas Tech University will be held virtually via Zoom on Friday, February 24, 2023.

This engaging teaching conference has a well-established history and a strong reputation in our area. The conference pulls in faculty members, staff, and graduate students from our region including Texas Tech, Midland College, South Plains College, Wayland Baptist University, Lubbock Christian University, West Texas A&M, and others. Past speakers include Kevin Gannon, Mays Imad, Ginger Clark, Emily Miller, Peter Felten, Sandra McGuire, Josh Eyler, and others.

This year, we are excited to feature Dr. James M. Lang, a former Professor of English and the Director of the D’Amour Center for Teaching Excellence at Assumption College in Worcester, MA.  Lang writes a monthly column on teaching and learning for The Chronicle of Higher Education; his work has been appearing in the Chronicle since 1999. He is the author of six books and his sessions at our conference will focus on his most recent work, Distracted: Why Students Can’t Focus and What You Can Do About It (Basic Books, 2020). You can follow him on Twitter at @LangOnCourse or learn more at http://jamesmlang.com.

Registration will open in 2023. Please check back in January to see individual session information. The Zoom links will be provided in the confirmation email.
