Message from the Outgoing Conference Director
Dear 2021 ITL Conference Attendees,
Since 2014, I have served as the director for the Innovations in Teaching and Learning (ITL) conference and have had the joy of working with so many of you over the years. I have been consistently inspired by the teaching and learning community at Mason—the passion instructors show for supporting student learning experiences and their willingness to share teaching insights (and challenges) with others.
Today, I write you to share an important announcement for the 2021 ITL conference.
As you may or may not have heard, this fall, I will be joining the Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences faculty at the University of British Columbia (Vancouver, Canada) in a tenure-track Discipline-Based Education Research (DBER) position. I will be building on and expanding my prior DBER work in the geosciences and STEM more broadly.
I am delighted to share with you that Katie Skipper has joined the ITL team as the new 2021 ITL Conference Director. You may already know Katie from her previous work at INTO Mason and as the Stearns Center’s Faculty Fellow for Language Diversity. While I shall miss the energizing conversations and idea exchanges of the ITL Conference, I look forward to seeing the next iteration of innovation in the Mason community and ITL.
If you have any questions about the conference or the Innovations in Teaching and Learning Conference Proceedings please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and your email will be directed to the ITL Planning Team member who can best assist you.
Thank you to all the people I have worked with over the years to make ITL happen.
Wishing you the best,
Laura Lukes, Ph.D.
