Acknowledging the past and moving forward in hope.
The 18th Annual Advancing Teaching and Learning Conference at Texas Tech University
will be held virtually via Zoom on Friday, February 25, 2022.
This engaging teaching conference has a well-established history and a strong reputation
in our area. The conference pulls in faculty members, staff, and graduate students
from our region including Texas Tech, Midland College, South Plains College, Wayland
Baptist University, Lubbock Christian University, West Texas A&M, and others. Past
speakers include Ginger Clark, Emily Miller, Peter Felten, Sandra McGuire, Stephen
Brookfield, George Kuh, Diana Halpern, Josh Eyler, and others.
This year, we are excited to feature Dr. Kevin Gannon (Grand View University) and
Dr. Mays Imad (Pima Community College), and learn from their respective work in the
areas of social justice, trauma-informed pedagogy. The conference will focus on recognizing
the trauma we have all experienced and witnessed as educators since the start of the
pandemic, and shifting our work and mindsets to focus on creating a more hopeful and
equitable environment for ourselves and our students.
