The annual Greater Kansas City Symposium on Teaching and Learning assembles area faculty and graduate students dedicated to scholarly teaching and the scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL). Participants have the opportunity to work collaboratively to advance course or institutional-level teaching and learning projects.
Unlike a traditional conference, the Symposium consists of facilitated work-groups and peer review of work-in-progress through an interactive poster session. Participants contribute to dialogue and collaboration on self-selected topics including implementing classroom-based research and reflective practices; how SoTL intersects with other teaching and learning movements within the academy; and issues related to the evaluation of teaching.
The location of the Symposium's location rotates every two years among steering committee institutions: Avila University, Baker University, Johnson County Community College, Metropolitan Community Colleges, Missouri Western State University, Park University, Rockhurst University, University of Kansas, University of Missouri-Kansas City, and William Jewell College. For information, or if you would like to become a member of the steering committee, please contact email@example.com.
