Thank you so much for agreeing to join us as a speaker at this year’s Annual Teaching Symposium! We are so excited to be working with you. Here is some information to help you prepare for your workshop. The Annual Teaching Symposium will begin promptly at 9am in the Gould Auditorium with the keynote address by Dr. Pearl Sandick, Associate Professor in Physics & Astronomy. The 45-minute workshops will follow throughout the rest of the day. We hope that you will feel free to attend the other workshops and that you will join us for lunch at noon. It promises to be a very exciting day!

If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us at

Program and Schedule

You can find a copy of the schedule and program here. Let us know if we need to make any changes to your name/title, the title of your session, or the description of your session. Please email any changes to Denise Clark ( no later than Thursday, August 10 by 11am.


If you are planning to have handouts of any kind, we can print those off for you. Please send the file and number of copies requested to Denise Clark ( by Thursday, August 10 by 11 am so we can be sure to have them printed for you. Copies will be double-sided unless you indicate otherwise.

When you arrive at the event, please check in at the registration desk located in the west lobby, where you’ll be able to pick up a copy of the program and any handouts you asked us to print. If you are printing your own, our general guideline is to have at least 30 copies available, but with so many people pre-registered, it’s become harder than ever to estimate what attendance will look like in individual sessions.

If you would like to go paperless (we try to), and/or would like to make your materials or references available electronically to attendees, we will be making them available on our website following the symposium. Send your materials to and we'll post them.

Rooms and Technology

We’ve confirmed that every room will have a projector/ TV for projection and a laptop connection. If you intend to project something from your own machine, there are cables available for PC users and occasionally mac, but we recommend playing it safe by bringing your own cable/adaptor if you can or checking one out from the Knowledge Commons on the 2nd floor of the library. You may also opt to bring a flash drive instead and use the computer located in your room. Even if you do plan to use your own computer, it can never hurt to bring your presentation along on a flash drive as a back up. We will supply markers for rooms with white boards. 

Room assignments can be found on the program schedule. Take a look at the map of the first floor of the library, if you need it.

Video Recording

Thanks to the generosity of Teaching & Learning Technologies (TLT), we are happy to be able to videotape a limited number of sessions at the upcoming Annual Teaching Symposium.

Feedback Forms

We will be asking attendees to complete feedback forms on the workshops they attend. No, we aren’t interested in how well you pulled off your presentation. Rather, the feedback helps us select which topics to present in future Annual Teaching Symposiums as well as CTLE workshops to hold throughout the year. We would really appreciate you reminding your attendees to complete the feedback form attached to their programs. At the end of the day, they can turn them in at the west lobby exit.
