Focus on Teaching and Learning Conference
Spring 2015: January 8, 2015, 8:30 am – 4 pm
Corboy Law Center, Water Tower Campus
The Loyola University Chicago bi-annual Focus on Teaching & Learning (FOTL) conference is dedicated to the belief that as educators, we can grow and develop by learning through one another. We seek to contribute to a faculty and staff life that involves active scholarship, candid and vibrant collaboration, and innovative activities that reflect the University’s mission. Our hope is that FOTL can support faculty activity at all stages of development, and that work begun through this gathering can continue in myriad ways in faculty life.
The theme of this conference is "Social Justice: Presence and Promise in Jesuit Education.” This theme is intended to assist us in considering how the value of social justice is present, and how we can further advance this focus in our work here at Loyola, both inside and outside the classroom.
Dr. Carolyn Shields of Wayne State University will present the keynote address. Dr. Shields is a renowned educator and speaker who will share her expertise on incorporating issues of social justice into the curriculum.
