The State University of
New York at Fredonia's
Teaching & Learning Conference
Monday, August 18, 2014
Williams Center, Fredonia Campus
"Framing the Future: Teaching, Learning, Advancing"
The State University of New York at Fredonia's 8th Annual Teaching & Learning conference
will focus on issues related to current and future challenges and opportunities in
higher education. Conference activities and presentations will enable presenters and
participants to connect with one another while exploring new, creative, and diverse
ways of thinking about teaching, learning, and working. As institutions look for ways
to remain competitive while continuing to provide students with quality, affordable
educational opportunities, this year’s conference aspires to serve as a conduit for
scholarly exchange and discussion designed to re-imagine higher education, with the
ultimate goal of improving student engagement and learning across disciplines.
