Teaching Conferences

Below is a list of teaching conferences for higher education to give you some ideas of conferences that you might attend with a TRC Teaching Study Skills Award (TSSA) to help your students learn more effectively. Most of these are higher education specific conferences about teaching and learning that can apply to a wide variety of disciplines. However, a few are more specialized by a field or focus on a particular method of instruction.

This is by no means a comprehensive list. Most disciplines have their own conferences that focus on teaching and learning in higher education. In addition, you might explore your discipline’s larger conferences. Often, they offer workshops, seminars, and other professional development around teaching and learning that may qualify for funding through the TSSA.
