About CoTL

The Fourth Annual South Alabama Conference on Teaching and Learning will be held May 12-13, 2014, at the newly renovated Student Center on the campus of the University of South Alabama in Mobile.

We developed this conference to showcase high quality, engaging, and innovative pedagogy among our colleagues. The theme for this year’s conference is “Motivation & Multimedia,” and we will be continuing our great run of keynote speakers this year with Dr. Dee Fink and Dr. Christy Price.  We will also be having two lunchtime panel discussions, with Monday’s featuring representatives from each of our four host institutions discussing the Function of Higher Education at the Present Time and Tuesday’s featuring new USA president, Dr. Tony Waldrop, and our keynote speakers discussing the Future of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education.

The conference is co-sponsored by  the University of South Alabama, Spring Hill College, University of Mobile, and Bishop State Community College, and early-bird registration is free for all faculty from those institutions as long as they pre-register by May 1, 2014. We welcome attendance and presentations from outside the Mobile community as well. Pre-registration for all attendees from outside the sponsoring institutions, including all late registrations, is $40 until the day of the event.  All on-site registration is $60.

Registration includes keynote addresses, concurrent sessions, a reception, and a networking lunch.
