The theme of this year's conference focused on how knowing ourselves and our students can help us reach a wider range of learners and expand upon our existing approaches to teaching. We encouraged presenters and attendees to consider how they can use their own interests and passions to sustain their teaching and create a lasting impact on their students. How do you attempt to engage students who come from different disciplines or have varied learning preferences? What might renew and recharge your excitement for teaching?
This year's keynote speaker was Dr. Ann-Louise de Boer, Research Fellow in the Department of Information Science at the University of Pretoria in South Africa. She is the author of Whole Brain Learning in Higher Education: Evidence-Based Practice (forthcoming, 2013) and holds a PhD in curriculum design. Dr. de Boer's keynote speech addressed how instructors can engage students who possess a diverse range of learning styles.
