Symposium on Innovation in Teaching & Learning

Each year, the Office of the Provost, Information Technology Services, and the Center for Teaching & Scholarly Excellence at Suffolk University invite New England faculty, academic technologists, administrators, teaching and learning specialists, instructional designers, and distance educators to attend Suffolk University’s annual symposium.
This year we have renamed the symposium: Symposium on Innovation in Teaching & Learning. The symposium will include technology, but will focus on approaching teaching and learning at Suffolk in a holistic manner.
