International Symposium on Innovative Teaching and Learning website

The symposium is a two-day event focusing on teaching excellence in higher education. Through workshops, presentations, panel discussions and observations, attendees will immerse themselves in learning what it means to be a great collegiate teacher. Also included in this symposium will be a collaboration and sharing of ideas and practices about teaching and learning between professors at Jilin University, other Chinese universities and universities in the U.S.. The peer-reviewed papers and poster presentations will be included in a publication from New Prairie Press.

Those who attend will receive a certificate of participation. It is our goal that after the symposium, participants will return to their colleges and universities and share information that will ultimately make a positive impact on student learning.

Kansas State University's 2020 Community Engagement Symposium focuses on student success through community engagement. Engagement with off-campus community projects offers practical opportunities for students to hone their skills and learn about issues that make a difference to diverse populations and sectors. Further, community engagement enriches students' academic experiences by featuring research on significant societal issues and participatory practices into their curriculum. Institutions of higher learning are increasingly engaging in partnership with communities to address critical societal challenges. Colleges and universities are aligning their resources - organizational structures, funding, faculty and staff knowledge and expertise, and student learning - with the needs of the communities that surround them. Enabling students to be at the forefront of these trends is the goal of this online course.
