eLearning Services encourages faculty members to submit to scholarship of teaching and learning conferences and journals, especially interdisciplinary and collaborative work. SOTL conferences are venues for sharing teaching and learning research and best practices, for peer learning, and for networking. Conference attendance and proceedings may be used for faculty teaching portfolios, a springboard for faculty peer-reviewed publications, as well as for recruiting for a particular Lawrence Tech University college or program.
Below are some conferences that were previously attended by LTU faculty members. The conference calls for proposals usually become available approximately 4-7 months prior to the actual conference.
