What is CLT Faculty Summer Conference?

CLT FSC is an opportunity for faculty to share their experience with online teaching and learn from others, through presentations, workshops, and panel discussions.

About CLT FSC 2021

The theme for the 2021 Faculty Summer Conference is Transforming the Online Student Learning Experience. Since that topic seems more relevant than ever, we’ll continue to focus on how to engage your online students and promote their success. Appropriately, the 2021 conference is online-only. So you can attend presentations, workshops, and panel discussions virtually via Zoom!

At the conference, you'll learn to...

  • Plan, organize, develop, and deliver an effective online/hybrid course
  • Design effective and engaging assignments and assessments
  • Foster faculty presence, availability, and responsiveness
  • Encourage faculty to embrace online course design as a strategy to rethink their teaching practices
