Lilly Conference on Teaching in Nontraditional Formats

Lilly Conference on Teaching in Nontraditional Formats. I have agreed to speak at this conference on the topic of placing a plagiarism lecture on Blackboard. The conference is in Traverse City, Michigan in September 2005. The conference will focus on the topic of teaching students in an online setting.

From the site:

The inaugural Lilly Conference on Teaching in Nontraditional Formats, supported in part by a grant from the Fund for Postsecondary Improvement (FIPSE), will be held September 16 - September 18, 2005 at the Great Wolf Lodge in beautiful Traverse City, Michigan.

This conference will focus on ensuring learning for adult students in nontraditional settings such as compressed format, on-line, and mixed method classes. We encourage you to share your knowledge about the best methods to help adult students learn as well as the best strategies for us, the professors, to learn from our own teaching. What has worked in your classroom? How have courses taught in nontraditional formats been designed on your campus? What have you learned through scholarly teaching? This conference is intended as a venue for experienced as well as novice instructors to convene, from all disciplines and institution types. We invite you to join your colleagues in discussing Teaching and Learning in Nontraditional Formats.
