In light of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 7th Annual Big 12 Teaching & Learning Conference that was scheduled for June 10-12 in Kansas City. Your safety is our top priority. If you have any questions please contact Pam Hicks at

In today's interconnected and networked world, we can engage in discussion with individuals from across the globe and find diverse opportunities to learn about each other. Many college or university units related to teaching and learning, however, find it difficult to know where or how to build on the potential of these opportunities and model collaboration, cross-campus dialogues or projects. The Big 12 Teaching and Learning Conference will encourage participants to present and discuss effective teaching methods and frameworks that will address classroom and institutional-level interventions enhancing student learning, expanding our inclusive teaching practices, and refining assessment of student learning.
