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 fall semester conference is "Social Justice: Promoting Diversity and Understanding Privilege.” This theme is intended to assist us in considering how the value of social justice is present and can be expanded in our work here at Loyola, both inside and outside the classroom.

We are pleased to be joined by Dr. Diane Goodman, our keynote speaker for the event. As a professor, consultant, trainer, author and activist, Dr. Goodman has been addressing issues of diversity and social justice for over 25 years. Diane and her associates have worked with a wide range of organizations, community groups, and universities on diversity and social justice issues. Using a participatory approach, she helps people increase their awareness, knowledge and skills to foster equity and inclusion.
