Conference Policies

RTL:IP and SoTL at McMaster

The Centre for Leadership in Learning (CLL) at McMaster University is pleased to announce our second annual ‘Research on Teaching and Learning: Integrating Practices’ Conference. This yearly event brings together faculty, students, staff, and administrators across disciplines and institutions to promote evidence-informed teaching practices through the sharing of research on teaching and learning.

Based on the successes of last year’s conference, we have expanded the event to a two-day format for this year. December 7th will feature pre-conference workshops on a range of teaching and learning research topics, as well as an opening plenary by Dr. Geoff Norman, Canada Research Chair in Cognitive Dimensions of Clinical Expertise and Assistant Dean of the Programme for Educational Research and Development (PERD) at McMaster University. The program for December 8th will consist of long and short papers, poster presentations, and an address by our distinguished keynote speaker: Dr. K. Lynn Taylor, Director of the Centre for Learning & Teaching at Dalhousie University and past Vice President, Scholarship of Teaching and Learning of the Society for Teaching & Learning in Higher Education (STLHE). Registration is now open.
