The conference will take place in Dillon Hall.
The purpose of the eleventh annual University of Windsor-Oakland University Teaching and Learning Conference is to explore and celebrate the many ways we can contribute to the enhancement of a culture that values teaching.
A post-secondary institution’s culture consists of its embedded patterns, networks, behaviours, shared values, beliefs, and ideologies (Cox et al., 2011; Kustra et al., 2014; Mårtensson & Roxå, 2016). Whether, and how, an institution values teaching can impact critical outcomes such as student learning, student engagement, and student retention as well as faculty motivation and behaviours (Berger & Braxton, 1998; Cox et al., 2011; Feldman & Paulsen, 1999; Grayson & Grayson, 2003).
This international conference will bring together more than 250 researchers, instructors, administrators, staff, and students to the University of Windsor, May 2-4, 2017. Join us as we explore perspectives, celebrate initiatives, uncover notions, challenge beliefs, and together, move towards a culture that values teaching!
The International Forum on Teaching Evaluation will open the conference on May 2, 2017. This full-day forum offers academics, administrators, faculty, students, and private sector professionals an opportunity to examine the specific dynamics and cultures in post-secondary institutions that impact how they define quality in teaching and how they implement effective methods in evaluating teaching.
Dr. Torgny Roxä (Lund University, Sweden) will lead a workshop during the pre-conference forum and present the keynote at the main conference.

The University of Windsor (ON) and Oakland University (MI) Teaching and Learning Conference is a cross-border collaboration that alternates between the two campuses annually. Funded in part by the Provosts of the two universities, this conference is an excellent opportunity for academics and graduate students to present and to become exposed to discipline-based teaching and learning research in a local environment.
