2012 Symposium on Scholarship of Teaching and Learning
The Institute for Scholarship of Teaching and Learning at Mount Royal University is pleased to announce our third annual Symposium on Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, November 8-10, 2012 in Banff Alberta Canada.
This gathering of teacher/scholars is a practitioners conference dedicated to developing individual and collaborative teaching and learning scholarship, sharing nascent data and findings, going public with compelling results of completed research projects, and building an extended scholarly community. The goals of this event, and the Institute for Scholarship of Teaching and Learning at Mount Royal University, include understanding and improving student learning through systematic scholarly inquiry and building collective knowledge for the future.
As in previous years, the Symposium will include an opening night reception and banquet with a keynote address, two plenary keynote presentations, and two full days of concurrent sessions.
This year, for the first time and by popular demand, the Symposium will include a Plenary Poster Session coinciding with our Scholarís Reception on Friday evening.
Please join us in Banff November 8-10 for what promises to be a productive and provocative gathering of teachers, scholars, and fellow travellers.
