Annual Summer Teaching Conference - Pedagogy, Technology & Course Redesign

As a Jesuit institution, Fairfield has a particular commitment to teaching and learning. In the tradition of Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Jesuits, Fairfield faculty take seriously cura personalis, the teaching and care of the whole person. In this spirit, our activities integrate intellect and affect in the service of others.

Our annual summer conference, Innovative Pedagogy & Course Redesign, explores and promotes innovation and scholarship in teaching and learning. Scroll down to view past conference schedules and download post-conference materials.
