Friday morning, 8:00 am, sees the return of Chat & Chew, aka “math speed dating,” following its tremendous attendance and rave reviews in San Diego. Friday and Saturday will provide opportunities to hear from the newest committee, Mathematics Standards in the First Two Years of College (IMPACT), as they sponsor a Symposium. They will give us the latest information on IMPACT, AMATYC’s third standards document. One workshop will focus on how to use IMPACT to engage students. There will be the opportunity to check out IMPACT Live!, the interactive online site to support the IMPACT document. Also, the Research in Mathematics for Two-Year Colleges and the Innovative Teaching and Learning Com- mittees will join the IMPACT team to share how PROWESS (PRoficiency, OWnership, Engagement, and Student Success) can be supported with research-based strategies. Watch for the new 25-minute mini sessions in which two speakers share the room with separate, but complementary, talks, perhaps with teaching tips for the same course, or strategies for engagement and retention.
The Original Lilly Conference on College Teaching is one of the nation’s most renowned conferences presenting the scholarship of teaching and learning. For thirty-five years, teacher-scholars from across the U.S. and internationally have gathered annually the weekend before Thanksgiving to share innovative pedagogies and discuss questions, challenges, and insights about teaching and learning.
The Conference has become a teaching retreat as well as a conference. Deans and chief academic officers often support the attendance of faculty teams at Lilly as recognition for outstanding faculty and for faculty development, and institutions planning Teaching and Learning Centers have found the Conference an effective way to meet and "scout" exceptional teacher-scholars. Miami University, with its timeless Georgian architecture and beautiful wooded areas, makes an attractive location for learning.
