Festival of Teaching and Learning

University of Alberta Festival of Teaching and Learning

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 teaching and learning approaches.

The university is home to great teachers – past and present – and the conference style 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 2018

Held on Friday, May 4, the 2018 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 José Antonio Bowen, Ph. D., author of Teaching Naked.

Location: Edmonton Clinic Health Academy (ECHA) L1-190
