You are invited to participate in this forward-looking forum designed to contemplate the rapidly evolving changes in university teaching in response to disruptive technologies and global forces. The program features renowned educators and innovators from a variety of disciplines in lectures, discussions, teaching demonstrations and interactive workshops.
Looking broadly, this conference begins with exploring our historical understanding of teaching, learning, and the goals of university education and moves to addressing questions regarding the future. How do contemporary transformations affect our perceptions of teaching? How might technological advances -- those existing as well as those anticipated -- impact when, where, and how we teach? The De Lange Conference IX on October 13-14, 2014 will provide a setting in which collective reflection on these issues will occur in concert with the opportunity to experience, envision, and discuss ways of transforming our own teaching practices.
Organized and hosted by De Lange Conferences, Scientia: Institute for the History of Science and Culture, and the Center for Teaching Excellence.
