Welcome!

PSU Shanango Building with StudentsThe Penn State Shenango Teaching Conference will focus on interdisciplinary approaches in undergraduate education and will be held March 15 and 16, 2013, on the campus of Penn State Shenango in Sharon, Pennsylvania. The mission of the conference is to bring college educators together to share experiences, resources, and innovative strategies to meet the diverse challenges of the twenty-first-century classroom.

We welcome proposals for presentations from those who teach in all college-level fields on any topics related to undergraduate education, especially in meeting the diverse challenges of the contemporary college environment. Our first conference was held in the fall of 2010, and covered the following topics, among others:

  • diversity in the classroom
  • nontraditional and adult learners
  • students with disabilities
  • using game theory and gaming in the classroom
  • twenty-first-century freshman composition courses
  • enhancing the freshman experience
  • engaging undergraduate students
  • reaching first-generation college students
