A three-day conference of teaching and learning professionals from around the world will be broadcast to U-M staff and faculty for free Monday through Wednesday.

The Educause Learning Initiative Annual Meeting provides content and exploration of the toughest issues currently facing higher education.

The meeting will take place in Anaheim, California, and accommodations have been made so U-M faculty and staff can gather to watch and discuss the sessions.

The theme of this year’s event is "Designing Our Thinking: Crafting New Directions for Digital Engagement."

Sessions feature TED-style presentations, learnshops, seminars, and speakers discussing current trends and issues within higher education. A full agenda and description of sessions can be found on the Educause website.

At U-M, group viewing sessions will be Monday and Tuesday at Forum Hall in Palmer Commons, and Wednesday at the Hatcher Graduate Library. Registration is not required. 

The broadcast is sponsored by the Office of Digital Education and Innovation, and Information and Technology Services, along with partners at the Center for Research on Learning & Teaching and the U-M Library.
