Integrated and Engaged Learning Conference 2014
Exploring Partnerships in Teaching and Learning
I am pleased to invite you to attend Laurier's inaugural Integrated and Engaged Learning Conference (IELC) that will be held from
May 7 - 9, 2014!
IELC 2014 brings together the various partners, both within an institution and external (faculty, staff,students and community members), involved in providing an educational experience that engages students deeply in their learning. The means for promoting deep and authentic learning are diverse: collaborative learning, active learning, flipped classrooms, learning technologies, first year seminars, writing-intensive courses, undergraduate research, capstone projects, residence learning communities, global engagement, personal development and applied experiential learning opportunities such as internships, co-op, field practica and community-engaged learning.
This conference will showcase high impact practices and partnerships in higher education and provide a forum for examining the successes and challenges of these approaches. The conference will feature concurrent sessions as well as keynote speakers and panels and will interest faculty, staff, students, administrators and external community partners. We are interested in proposals that address the conference theme of partnerships that promote integrated and engaged learning on both a curricular and co-curricular basis. What do we know about these practices? How do they foster engaged learning? What works, what doesn’t? What partnerships work best?
The Conference is sponsored by the President, Provost and Vice-President Academic, Vice President Student Affairs, Associate Vice President: Teaching and Learning and Laurier's Teaching and Learning Council. Registrationis affordable at $100 ($50 for Laurier faculty and staff; $10 for students). Bursaries are available for students who are involved in conference sessions.
Join us as we showcase and share our collective experience, innovation, and achievement in improving the quality of undergraduate and graduate education.
