California State University, San Bernardino (CSUSB) is excited to RECONNECT faculty and staff across the CSU and surrounding community colleges by hosting the 22nd Annual Symposium on Teaching and Learning this winter!

Sponsored by CSU Innovative Teaching and Learning Programs and the CSU Faculty Development Council, the CSU Symposium on Teaching and Learning convenes educators from all 23 CSU campuses -- and those who collaborate with them -- to share research findings, pedagogical innovations, and evidence-based, culturally sustaining practices for reaching and teaching our diverse student body.

José Antonio Bowen, author of Teaching ChangeTeaching Naked, and the forthcoming Teaching with AI, will facilitate a plenary workshop, “New Relationships and New Technologies: Teaching with AI in 2024,” on Saturday, February 24.


The Symposium will have presentations on the following themes:

  • Culturally responsive pedagogies
  • Student engagement and belonging
  • (Emerging) technologies as tools for learning 
  • Inclusive learning assessment and outcomes
  • CSU-UC-Community Colleges Partnerships

The SoTL agenda is available here, and the SoTL will use EventsAIR’s conference app (iOS, Android, HTML5) with event code sotl-2024.

Presentations will consist of posters, interactive sessions, symposium sessions, mini sessions, and virtual sessions (Friday, 3/1 only).

​The 2024 RECONNECT symposium is hosted by CSU San Bernardino’s Faculty Center for Excellence in conjunction with ISSUES-X, an NSF IUSE project.

To be held on two consecutive weekends with both in person and virtual opportunities to RECONNECT, the symposium is an opportunity to join your colleagues in learning and sharing with each other some of the exciting work we have done across the system and state in the past five years.

The in-person portion of the symposium (the first since 2019) will be held on the beautiful CSUSB main campus nestled against the San Bernardino Mountains on Friday, Feb. 23 & Saturday, Feb. 24. The virtual portion will be held the following week on Friday, March 1. Here are guidelines for presenters:

  • Interactive Session (90 minutes). Interactive Sessions are opportunities for actively engaging participants, facilitating collaborative conversation, or demonstrating effective educational development practices. Session proposals should include both an abstract and a facilitation plan or schedule of activities. Creative and engaging approaches are encouraged, and diverse formats are welcome.
  • Symposium Session (30 minutes). Sessions last 20 minutes, followed by 10 minutes for interaction with participants through questions or discussion.
  • Mini Session (15 minutes) Each presenter will be allocated 15 minutes (10 minutes of presenting and 5 minutes of questions) before moving onto the next presenter in the session.
  • Poster Session. Posters will be displayed to allow presenters to engage with symposium participants. Posters may feature emerging or completed research and/or topics that inspire critical discussion and engagement with symposium strands.
  • Virtual Session (30 minutes, Friday, March 1 only). Virtual Sessions last 20 minutes, followed by 10 minutes for online interaction with participants through questions or discussion.

Registration for the conference is now open. Registration fees are $40 for in-person attendees and $10 for virtual-only attendees. Please see the Travel and Lodging tab above for information on getting to CSUSB and suggestions for accommodation. We look forward to RECONNECTing with you!
