A Focus on You with help from the Lilly Conferences

March 31, 2014

The following resources regarding Lilly Conferences provide excellent opportunities for growth as you commit to being a life long learner. You can access research, set a goal to present, or set a goal to write a scholarly article.

For 34 years, the Lilly Conferences on College and University Teaching and Learning have been known as exceptional places to present and to learn from faculty colleagues on effective teaching and learning. This interdisciplinary teaching conference includes faculty, administrators, and graduate students from across the United States and abroad. Participants are given the opportunity to exchange ideas, build a repertoire of skills that can be put to immediate use, and to network with colleagues. The overall conference theme for the Lilly Conference series is “Evidence-Based Teaching and Learning.” Each of the Lilly Conferences are unique, but they all share the same great Lilly community spirit.
