Welcome! Please join us for the 1st Annual Mount Aloysius Conference on College Teaching, which will be held on the Mount Aloysius College campus October 18-19, 2018.

The Mount Aloysius Conference on College Teaching is an opportunity for secondary and post-secondary educators to share innovative ideas that facilitate student learning. The Conference invites educators charged with transitioning and preparing students for college along with those who teach at the college level.

The Mount Aloysius Conference on College Teaching is a perfect opportunity to learn about new ideas for the classroom, but it is not restricted to classroom educators. Rather, the Conference offers a venue for other stakeholders in student success to share their best practices (e.g., admissions representatives, advisors, coaches, financial aid counselors, librarians, mentors, technology support specialists, etc.).
