Join the keynote speaker to build on and dive more deeply into research-informed practices that enhance learning and educational relationships for all students. You will leave the workshop with a draft plan for how you can either deepen something you already do or introduce a new practice that will contribute to your students’ success.

Peter is Assistant Provost for Teaching and Learning, Executive Director of the Center for Engaged Learning, and Professor of History at Elon University (US). Professionally, he is curious about how people learn and how to cultivate change in individuals, institutions, and cultures. His publications include the co-authored books: The Undergraduate Experience (2016) and Engaging Students as Partners in Learning and Teaching (2014), and the co-edited book: Intersectionality in Action (2016). He is president (2016-17) of the International Society for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, and co-editor of the International Journal for Academic Development. Personally, he is curious about why he so consistently loses at board games and how it can be that chocolate always tastes good.
