APRIL 28, 2022 – Mark your calendars! The 2022 Teaching & Learning Symposium will be returning after a two-year pandemic hiatus and we are thrilled to be together again!

We invite all William & Mary instructors and co-educators to submit proposals that celebrate innovative and effective teaching methods and unique learning experiences for the upcoming Teaching & Learning Symposium. We are eager to highlight creative, innovative, and effective approaches to engaging students in their learning.

Session Types:

• Spotlight Session: Presenters share a teaching and learning idea or practice and facilitate discussion on their experience. These 30-minute sessions are designed to provide both depth and examples that attendees can discuss.

Previous topic sessions: Hybridized instruction: Study in DC meets online learning, Shifting the faculty role in learning: Decisions & tools for student collaboration, and Creative uses for the HistoryMakers database: Incorporating African American history across the disciplines

• Lightning Round: Designed to briefly share a teaching strategy, tip, or resource that you’ve found effective. Each presenter will have 15 minutes, which will include time for Q&A with the audience.

Previous topic sessions: One minute, one figure presentations: A fast way to improve oral communication and Reflection in the classroom: Making connections between life and learning

• Roundtable: Participants discuss innovations in teaching and learning around a particular theme, problem of practice, or technology integration. These 45-minute sessions are more conversational and free-form, giving presenters and participants opportunities to discuss their teaching practice.

Previous topic sessions: Open Access Publishing with W&M ScholarWorks, Student Projects with Social Media and Microsoft Sway, and Beyond free pizza: Grad student perspectives on working with TAs
