About the Symposium

Many at UW are actively engaged in examining how teaching affects student learning – the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) research.  Each spring the Center for Teaching and Learning hosts the annual UW Teaching and Learning Symposium to provide a forum where all who share this interest can learn of their colleagues’ work and engage in discussion.  The event includes a keynote talk and two poster sessions.  Posters presented each year range from classroom/action research to published SoTL research.
