The Institute for Scholarship of Teaching and Learning is pleased to announce that our first annual Centennial Symposium on Scholarship of Teaching and Learning will take place at the Banff Park Lodge Resort Hotel and Conference Centre (Banff, Alberta) Thursday, November 11 through Saturday, November 13, 2010.  Pre-symposium workshops will be held on the campus of Mount Royal University (Calgary, Alberta) Wednesday, November 10, 2010.  This event commemorates Mount Royal University’s 100-year commitment to understanding and improving student learning, while also celebrating the establishment of the Institute for Scholarship of Teaching and Learning. This gathering of teachers/scholars is a “practitioners conference” dedicated to developing individual and collaborative teaching and learning scholarship, sharing nascent data and findings, going public with compelling results of completed research projects, and building an extended scholarly community.
