22nd Annual Teaching Council Conference: Celebrating College Teaching


Thursday and Friday, Oct. 22-23, 2015
Kent State University, Kent, Ohio

The 22nd annual Celebrating College Teaching Conference takes place Oct.  22 and 23, 2015 at the Kent Student Center. The University Teaching Counsel's annual conference focuses on the four pillars of a Kent State undergraduate curriculum — knowledge, insight, responsibility and engagement.

The conference kicks  off with the Thursday Evening Dialogue, and Friday's activities include the Provost's Breakfast,  followed by refereed round tables; invited round tables, including the Emeriti Round Table; poster displays; the President's Luncheon; and the Glenn W. Frank Lecture.

The conference culminates with a dessert reception at 2:30 p.m., to honor recipients of the Distinguished Teaching Awards and the Outstanding Teaching Awards, as well as the wealth of teaching excellence at Kent State.

More details about the conference available on the Annual UTC Conference page
