2020 Pedagogy Conference
11th Annual Pedagogy Conference
at Northeast Lakeview College
About the Pedagogy Conference
Our Conference focuses on innovative Teaching in all disciplines as well as student service practices. Our theme is “Teaching as a Superpower!”
Our Keynote Speaker this year is Northwest Vista College professor of psychology, Dr. Don Lucas, author of Being: Your Happiness, Pleasure, and Contentment. Dr. Lucas, the 2008 winner of the Minnie Stevens Piper award, has a specialization in Neuroscience and Behavior, and his teaching has been featured in San Antonio newspapers, magazines, and on CBS's KENS 5 and ABC's KSAT 12. His keynote address, The Joy of Teaching, will be about the essence of teaching: the fun of being physically and mindfully active in the most joyful place on earth, the classroom.
Programs will be handed out at the Conference, but all the Conference Information, descriptions of Presentations, and Presenter Biographies is already available on our Conference App, Events XD. To use the Pedagogy Conference App, download the Events XD app in the App Store (for Apple) or in Google Play (Android), Register, and Search for "NLC." The NLC Pedagogy Conference should appear.
This year's presentation threads are:
- Building a Toolkit for New Teachers
- Teaching and Innovative Practices
- Technology in Instruction and Education
- Teaching Locally, Thinking Globally
- Embracing Equity and Inclusion
- Bridging Secondary and College Education
- Issues in Teaching PreK-12
We are also responding to numerous requests to address an area of tremendous interest: educators-in-training. So, in addition to our other presentation topic threads, we also have a new thread, “Building a Toolkit for New Teachers,” which focuses on information, practices, troubleshooting, and advice for those who are currently earning a degree in education, starting their teaching career, or new to the classroom.
Register for the Conference
Conference registration is now open. Although the Conference is free, we need an accurate count of all those who will attend so that we can have lunch reserved for those who are officially registered.
This Conference is FREE and open to all elementary, middle school, high school, and college educators as well as college students interested in the teaching field. One of the conference goals is to foster a learning community that supports the Texas P-16 Initiative focused on preparing all students for a college education. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about innovative teaching activities that encourage student success during the transition from high school to college-level coursework.
