About International Symposium for Innovative Teaching and Learning

Our Symposium is a three-day meeting focusing on teaching excellence in higher education. Through workshops, presentations, panel discussions, and observations, attendees will immerse themselves in learning what it means to be a great collegiate teacher. Also included in this Symposium will be a collaboration and sharing of ideas and practices about teaching and learning between professors in Chinese Universities and universities in the US. The peer-reviewed papers and poster presentations will be included in a publication from New Prairie Press. Those who attend will receive a certificate of participation. It is our goal that after the symposium, participants will return to their colleges and universities and share information which will ultimately make a positive impact on student learning.
