About the symposium

The Scholarly Teaching Symposium is an annual half-day event designed to foster a culture of scholarly teaching and support the scholarship of teaching and learning. It provides faculty with a venue to share their promising teaching practices and for disseminating results of scholarly teaching interventions, such as the work of the Curriculum Enhancement Grant (CEG) awardees.

 This symposium aims to:

  1. Offer instructors of all ranks and appointments an opportunity to gain new perspectives on how their teaching can have a greater impact and be more rewarding for both students and instructors.
  2. Disseminate promising scholarly teaching practices.
  3. Provide an opportunity for faculty to connect with colleagues to form formal and informal networks to advance scholarly teaching.
  4. Strengthen CTL partnerships with other units on campus in support of scholarly teaching.

The project presentations by previous year's CEG scholars are a special feature of the symposium. Their work attests to the values and achievements of engaging in scholarly interrogations of teaching. Beginning in 2020, CEG scholars will present their work at the Scholarly Teaching Symposium, which replaces the and the Scholars Teaching for Student Success event.
