Lilly Conferences as a Venue to Present SoTL Research

There are a number of good conferences faculty can attend to learn about and present on the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL). Lilly Conferences on College Teaching and Learning is a series of conferences that many Belmont faculty are particularly fond of. As you can see below,  Belmont faculty have given 10 academic presentations at three different Lilly Conferences during the fall 2018 semester alone. Feel free to contact us in the Teaching Center if you have any questions about teaching and learning conferences and/or if you are interested in applying for a Teaching Center travel grant to attend a teaching conference. You can learn about one faculty member’s experience of attending Lilly Conferences here.
