The University of Windsor (ON) and Oakland University (MI) Teaching and Learning Conference is a cross-border collaboration that alternates between the two campuses annually. Funded in part by the Provosts of the two universities, this conference is an excellent opportunity for academics and graduate students to present and to become exposed to discipline-based teaching and learning research in a local environment.
The conference is also host to the Dr. Wilbert J. McKeachie International Poster Prize competition, intended to promote the importance and value of posters for the communication of teaching practice and research. Dr. McKeachie (University of Michigan, Emeritus) is a seminal figure in the establishment of the discipline of educational development in higher education and the author of the well-known text, Teaching Tips: Strategies, Research and Theory for College and University Teachers (2007).
Registration costs for University of Windsor, and Oakland University faculty, staff, and students are underwritten wholly by the Office of the Provost and Vice-President Academic, University of Windsor and Senior Vice-President for Academic Affairs and Provost, Oakland University. When the conference is held at Oakland University, the CTL provides transportation to and from the University for Windsor faculty, staff, and students.
