2021 Pedagogy Conference
11th Annual Pedagogy Conference
presented by Northeast Lakeview College
About the Virtual Pedagogy Conference - Saturday, 20 March 2021, 8:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.
Register Now! Our Conference this year focuses on innovative Teaching in all disciplines as well as student service practices. Our theme is “Teaching as a Transformative Superpower!”
Our Keynote Speaker is Northwest Vista College professor of psychology, Dr. Don Lucas, author of Being: Your Happiness, Pleasure, and Contentment. Dr. Lucas, the 2008 winner of the Minnie Stevens Piper award, has a specialization in Neuroscience and Behavior, and his teaching has been featured in San Antonio newspapers, magazines, and on CBS's KENS 5 and ABC's KSAT 12. His keynote address, The Joy of Teaching, will be about the essence of teaching: the fun of being physically and mindfully active in the most joyful place on earth, the classroom.
For the first time this year, Our Conference will be held Virtually, so you can enjoy attending the conference and earn professional credits all from home! We are using Zoom with an Accelevents platform, so if you can Zoom, you already know how to attend.
This year's presentation threads are:
- Building a Toolkit for New Teachers Going Remote
- Technology and Innovative Teaching Practices in a Remote Environment
- Teaching Challenges in a Hybrid and Remote Environment
- Teaching Locally, Thinking Globally
- Embracing Equity and Inclusion across a Digital Divide
- Bridging Secondary and College Education
- Reaching PreK-12 Students in Our New Environment
We are also responding to numerous requests to address an area of tremendous interest: educators-in-training. So, in addition to our other presentation topic threads, we also have a new thread, “Building a Toolkit for New Teachers Going Remote,” which focuses on information, practices, troubleshooting, and advice for those who are currently earning a degree in education, starting their teaching career, or new to the classroom.
Register for the Conference
Conference registration is now open and you can preview the presentations when you register. Although the Conference is free, we need an accurate count of all those who will attend.
This Conference is FREE and open to all elementary, middle school, high school, and college educators and librarians as well as college students interested in the teaching field or library science. One of the conference goals is to foster a learning community that supports the Texas P-16 Initiative focused on preparing all students for a college education. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about innovative teaching activities that encourage student success during the transition from high school to college-level coursework.
Note: We are offering .5 (5 hours) of Continuing Professional Education (CPE) units for ISD teachers and college instructors, or .7 (7 hours) upon completion of a brief online assignment. If you would like to receive further information about the CPEs, please indicate your interest in the information when you register.
The Conference will be held virtually using Zoom with an Accelevents Dashboard.
