Lilly Conferences are retreats that combine workshops, discussion sessions, and major addresses, with opportunities for informal discussion about excellence in college and university teaching and learning. Internationally-known scholars join new and experienced faculty members, teaching assistants, and administrators from all over the world to discuss topics such as creating community, diversity in learning, incorporating technology into teaching, encouraging critical thinking, using teaching and student portfolios, implementing group learning, and evaluating teaching. Featured tracks include: Advancing Active Learning, Teaching Well with Technology, Engaging and Motivating Students, Promoting Diversity, Service/Experiential Learning, Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, and Faculty Development.
The 2012 conference theme is Teaching for Brain-Based Learning. Additional information about the conference is available at www.uncg.edu/tlc/lillyconference/
