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. 

FoTL takes as its theme for 2023 the re-imagining of traditions. The FoTL Steering Committee is calling for proposals relating to, engaging with, and/or even just musing on and talking 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 especially here at the U of A), and how re-imagining these traditions can move us, individually and collectively, toward learning, unlearning, and relearning teaching in a good way.*
