The pre-conference workshop is a new feature of this year’s symposium. Join Dr. Jackie Dewar of Loyola Marymount University, a former Carnegie Foundation CASTL scholar, for an intense, engaging afternoon about doing publishable research into student learning in your own classroom or lab. No extra charge. Limited to 40 participants, register early.
Our plenary speaker is Dr. Ed Prather of Arizona State University. Ed and his colleagues (including Cal Poly Pomona’s own Alex Rudolph) have shown conclusively that interactive learning and classroom engagement help students to learn better, even in huge classes. Ed is a fantastic speaker, don’t miss this opportunity!

IATS is the home of the Lilly Conference series, which I have found, over the years, to be valuable opportunities to share scholarship of teaching
ideas and studies and talk with colleagues across the disciplines about the scholarship of teaching. The IATS also publishes the Journal for Excellence
in College Teaching, a fine outlet wherein to publish your work. We have copies in the CTL to examine. (Stoner)
