Ist International Conference on Teaching and Learning

Deep radical and urgent transformation is required in higher education to prepare students for the highly competitive 21st-century global market (Institute for Public Policy Research, 2013).

The purpose of the conference is to exchange transformative research and innovative classroom practices that will lead us to reimagine teaching to maximize student learning. Scholarly evidence shows that active learning and redesigned learning spaces result in the development of critical thinking and problem-solving skills. In addition, classroom-based research documents successful academic practices that enhance student learning.
