ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
The Georgia Conference on College & University Teaching is an interdisciplinary conference designed to provide college and university faculty with the opportunity to discuss and share experiences and innovative teaching techniques. Over the past 17 years, faculty from all 34 University System of Georgia colleges and universities, as well as other schools in the Southeastern region, have attended. Some return year after year to learn from one another and talk about teaching in a relaxed, congenial atmosphere. The conference offers concurrent sessions on teaching techniques and issues associated with undergraduate education. Time is also available for participants to get to know each other and establish contacts with fellow teachers throughout the State and Southeast region.
