Annual Conference (ITL)


15th Annual Innovations in Teaching & Learning Conference

Friday, October 6, 2023

George Mason University


Join us in person for a full day of interactive workshops, panels, teaching-focused research presentations, and networking with colleagues. This hybrid conference format will also include live-streaming options and On Demand content. 

Faculty from all ranks/disciplines, graduate students, and members of support offices are welcome. 


SEEKING SESSION PROPOSALS: We are currently accepting session proposals through Wednesday, March 1st.  For submission link and more details, see RFP page. 

SEEKING REVIEWERS: We currently are seeking faculty, staff, or graduate students to help select the best possible conference program. 

What does reviewing entail?  Typically, we ask people to review 6-10 proposals, and it takes about 1-2 hours to complete. Proposals are ~1 page of information. You will have a scoring rubric to evaluate the proposals (for audience, topic, Mason-focus, and context/transferability) with room for comments/suggestions and assign an overall score. Proposal reviews are submitted through a Qualtrics Form by Friday, March 31. (Reminder: Spring Recess is March 13-17). 

Interested?  Please complete our reviewer volunteer form. We will follow up with volunteers early March with their proposal assignments and more details. 


Dear Mason community,  

The Innovations in Teaching & Learning (ITL) conference has always been a unique space for Mason instructors, GTAs, administrators, and staff to forge a sense of community around teaching and learning. This year, our 15th annual Innovations in Teaching & Learning (ITL) conference will be held both in-person and online, Friday, October 6th.  

We carry on the spirit from previous years, fostering inclusive excellence, as our goal is to serve and support as many people teaching at Mason as possible.  There will be live streaming of the Keynote Address and of select presentations.  We hope this hybrid approach makes attending online and/or in-person well worth your time. With generous donations from our sponsors, we will offer FREE registration (and lunch) this year.  

Please email if you have any questions.   

We sincerely appreciate your support and flexibility during this time.   

In solidarity,  

The 2023 Innovations in Teaching & Learning Conference Planning Team
