May 13-15, 2015 Mount Pleasant Michigan

2015 Conference Theme:  Creating Connections that Promote Success in Higher Ed

We’re excited to announce the Call for Proposals for the 8th Annual Great Lakes Conference on Teaching and Learning!

The theme for this year’s conference focuses on four specific ways of connecting in higher education that promote success for both students and faculty. Join us to learn effective strategies for connecting:

Students to students (e.g., inclusive practices, collaborative learning, teams);

Instructor to students (e.g., faculty-student rapport, classroom civility);

Students to course content (e.g., assessing prior knowledge, making content relevant, capstone courses)

Students to the greater community (e.g., experiential learning, academic service-learning, mentoring programs).
