Annual Teaching and Learning Symposium

The Center for Teaching and Learning invites UW faculty, students, and staff to attend the Ninth Annual University of Washington Teaching and Learning Symposium. The symposium is scheduled for Tuesday, April 16, 2:00 - 4:30 p.m. and will take place in the HUB Lyceum.

Many at UW are actively engaged in examining how teaching affects student learning. The Symposium provides a forum where all who share this interest can learn about the work colleagues are doing. Although the call for proposals is closed for this year, we invite you to attend the poster fair and keynote panel that will focus on innovative uses of technologies in teaching.

Come and see what your colleagues have been discovering about teaching and learning!

We hope that you plan to join us this year!
