The John M. Burns Conference on The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning
Please save the date for this year's conference: September 18th, 2020
Although the John M. Burns Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Conference has traditionally
been offered face-to-face, the Teaching Academy is carefully considering alternative
deliveries and formats in light of uncertainties due to COVID-19. We will update this
site and all registered individuals as soon as more information becomes available.
The John M. Burns Conference on the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning is co-sponsored
each year by the Teaching, Learning, and Professional Development Center and the Teaching
Academy. Named in honor of Dr. John M. Burns, who helped found the Teaching Academy,
this conference is held each fall and features two keynote sessions from an invited
teacher-scholar and a poster session from recipients of the Annual Lawrence Schovanec
Teaching Development Scholarship Award. Past speakers include Bryan Dewsbury, Peter
Felten, Claire Howell Major, Michele DiPietro, and Derek Bruff.
