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 the Fall 2014 semester conference is "Scholarship of Teaching & Learning: Teaching as Inquiry.” This theme is intended to assist us in being intentional about how we teach and to illustrate how research informs decisions regarding teaching methodology.

We are thrilled to be joined by Dr. Peggy Maki, our keynote speaker for the event. Dr. Maki is a higher education consultant who specializes in assisting colleges and universities, higher education boards, higher education organizations, and disciplinary organizations in integrating assessment of student learning into educational practices, processes and structures. She is also a recipient of The Lindback Award for Distinguished Teaching, a national teaching award.

In her address, Dr. Maki will offer a model for taking a “backward-design” approach to assessing students’ learning that will help raise questions about how and why students learn. Her contention is that becoming knowledgeable about the “hows” and “whys” helps faculty to create curricula using new pedagogies and educational practices that are intentional and research-based.

A complete agenda will be posted shortly.
