Faculty of all ranks and administrators at all Penn State locations are invited to participate in the biennial Schreyer Conference, co-sponsored by the Schreyer Institute for Teaching Excellence, the Schreyer Honors College, and the Office for General Education. Conference topics will address the concerns of faculty, particularly faculty who will be submitting new course proposals and revised courses for recertification.

The conference will begin with a brief video of students’ perspectives on Gen Ed and a review of the program approved by the University Faculty Senate. Participants will next select one of 4 concurrent sessions:

  • Managing the Senate Recertification Process
  • Promotion, Dossiers, and Structures that Support Integrative Teaching
  • Integrating Inclusive Teaching into Gen Ed Courses
  • Effective Teaching in Integrative Studies Courses

The conference will culminate with lunch and a wrap-up session featuring Provost Nick Jones, emceed by SHC Dean Peggy Johnson, and including ample time for participant questions.

The conference will be lived streamed. We will post the URLs in the near future.
