 29th Annual Southwest Seminar

29th Southwest Seminar for Great Teaching

October 26th - October 28th, 2017

Inn and Spa at Loretto Santa Fe, NM

"Educators’ Point of View"

This Southwest Seminar for Great Teaching is based on the premise that college faculty are a rich resource that needs to be tapped via a format which encourages learning from each other. The Southwest Seminar for Great Teaching takes a participant-centered focus that allows those in attendance to determine much of the content. Thus, unlike traditional conferences, there are few presenter lead sessions. Instead, the participants are actively involved in each session in that they are asked to reflect upon their experiences and contribute their ideas to the topic at hand.

Register for the Seminar by October 11, 2017 (MS Word)
