Focus on Teaching and Learning: Spring 2015

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 was "Social Justice: Presence and Promise in Jesuit Education.” 

Dr. Carolyn Shields of Wayne State University presented the keynote address. Dr. Shields is a renowned educator and speaker who shared her expertise on incorporating issues of social justice into the curriculum.
