About the Festival
Excellence in teaching deserves to be celebrated. Innovation in teaching needs to be shared. That’s why the University of Alberta’s Festival of Teaching and Learning aims to foster excellence in the academy by creating a venue for the exploration of both practiced and experimental classroom innovations.
The university is home to great teachers – past and present – and the festival strives to inspire and celebrate those who are teaching now and those who will be in the future. Instructors and researchers from all disciplines and career points with an interest in teaching and learning issues are welcomed and encouraged to attend.
What to Expect for 2017
Held on Thursday, May 4, the 2017 edition of the festival will feature a full day of presentations, workshops, and networking sessions. The day will kick-off with a Keynote Lecture by Maryellen Weimer, Ph.D., editor of The Teaching Professor newsletter and author of the Teaching Professor blog.
