16th Annual Innovations in Teaching & Learning Conference

Strategic Teaching

Online Sessions | Thursday, September 19, 2024

In-Person Sessions | Friday, September 20, 2024

The Innovations in Teaching and Learning 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, the 16th annual Innovations in Teaching & Learning (ITL) conference will feature online sessions on September 19, 2024 and in-person sessions on September 20, 2024. 

The aim of this year’s conference is to highlight strategies for thriving in an ever-shifting educational landscape. We continue to instruct students who have experienced an unprecedented interruption to their educational journey. We adapt to new developments in educational technology that impact our teaching, including the introduction of a new learning management system to Mason. We grapple with incorporating generative AI into our teaching practice. This year’s conference will highlight ways that Mason instructors can meet these teaching challenges to create thriving learning environments for students.

Similarly, the Stearns Center for Teaching and Learning continues to adapt the conference to meet the changing needs of participants. This year, we offer online sessions on September 19, 2024 and in-person sessions on September 20, 2024. We hope this hybrid approach allows as many people teaching at Mason as possible to benefit from the conference.

We are looking forward to an exciting conference this year!
