Traditions Re-Imagined: Learning, Unlearning, and Relearning Teaching  Hybrid Festival of Teaching and Learning May 2— 4, 2023

2023 Festival of Teaching and Learning

The Festival of Teaching and Learning is an annual event where all members of the University of Alberta teaching and learning community can share, demonstrate, explore, and embody the plurality and intersectionality of approaches to university teaching with the goal of enhancing our pedagogies as well as our teaching and learning environments across our institution.

This year's hybrid Festival of Teaching and Learning (FoTL) will take place May 2⁠–⁠4, 2023.

The Festival of Teaching and Learning's theme for 2023 is the re-imagining of traditions. The sessions relate to, engage with, and/or muse on and talk about, what the idea of tradition means when it comes to pedagogies and to teaching and learning, what our traditions are in and across academia, and how re-imagining these traditions can move us, individually and collectively, toward learning, unlearning, and relearning teaching in a good way.*
