The 37th Annual International Conference on Improving University Teaching

The 37th Annual International Conference on Improving University Teaching will be held this year in Innsbruck, Austria. The conference will run from July 24 through July 27, and will be hosted locally by the University of Innsbruck. The deadline for submitting a proposal for a conference presentation has past, but click here to learn more about the conference, the venue, and how to register at:

The overarching theme this year is Fostering Knowledge Transfer. Student success in transferring what they know to their activities in the real world is a key test of higher education. In the end, what counts most is not how well students do in school, but how they are prepared for what awaits them afterwards. This year’s IUT theme explores how innovative teaching and assessment can better assist our students to meet the realities of a changing work environment.

Four sub-themes underlie the overall topic:
• Latest Research on Knowledge Transfer
• Case Method Teaching
• Evidence-Based Learning
• Assessment Outside the Box
