This year's annual Teaching and Learning Conference will take place on Friday, May 5 in the Lincoln Park Student Center. The theme of this year's conference is "Beyond Grades-Capturing Authentic Learning." The event is free and open to all DePaul faculty and staff.

"Part of going beyond the grades is thinking about educational experiences differently," says Erin Sella, assistant director of teaching support. "It doesn't need to be the traditional lecture and exams."

During the conference, more than 30 speakers will present on moving beyond traditional forms of evaluation and education.

Tom Angelo, clinical professor of educational research and innovation at the University of North Carolina Eshelman School of Pharmacy, is the keynote speaker. Angelo will focus on practical techniques teachers can use to ensure effectiveness, efficiency and learning quality. His session will be highly interactive, allowing attendees to participate in the teaching techniques he will highlight.

The event is made possible by Faculty Instructional Technology Services; the Office for Teaching, Learning and Assessment; Student Affairs; the University Center for Writing-based Learning; Faculty Council's Committee on Learning and Teaching and the Quality of Instruction Council.
