TLT Group TGIF 1.17.2012               

From TLT Group World Headquarters What we're NOT talking about this week:  the 2012 Presidential Election.

What we ARE talking about:  Teaching, and how to improve it.  So who better to have with us this FridayLive! than the Fab Four of teaching and learning in higher education:  Milt Cox, Ray Purdom, Laurie Richlin, and Todd Zakrajsek - the Directors of the
Lilly Conferences.

Those of you who have been lucky enough to have attended a Lilly Conference will appreciate the rare occasion this webcast will be - it took some planetary alignment to get them all together at the same time. So come and celebrate Lilly!  And join us for a fabulous discussion on teaching and learning in higher education!
  By the end, we're confident that you'll know why a conference on teaching is good.

Lilly Director's Roundtable: What Makes Lilly Conferences Different

Friday Jan. 20, 2:00pm EDT... Free to all

Milt Cox, Ray Purdom, Laurie Richlin, Todd Zakrajsek

The 5 annual Lilly Conferences on College & University Teaching have long earned their reputation for providing excellent resources for understanding and improving teaching and learning in higher education.   For over thirty years, teacher-scholars from across the U.S. and internationally have gathered to share insights and recommendations in these events.  Each conference provides a balance of scholarly research, practical guidance, collegial support.  The directors shape each conference to provide a context of long-term goals, long-standing truths, and new research in which presenters and participants discuss the most pressing teaching/learning questions and challenges of the day.  Most featured speakers and other session presenters participate in these conferences from start to finish - extending their relations with colleagues they know well and building new connections.

Join Steve Gilbert in a discussion with the current Directors about their perspective on teaching and learning in higher education as shaped by their interactions with conference presenters and participants.  We’ll explore the Lilly Directors’ views on how participants can make the most of these conferences - the value of attendance by teams, achieving effective mixtures of research scholarship and community building.
