2019 Pedagogy Conference
10th Annual Pedagogy Conference
at Northeast Lakeview College
About the Pedagogy Conference
Northeast Lakeview College’s 10 Annual Pedagogy Conference will be held on Saturday, March 2, 2019, beginning at 8:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. This year, the Conference will focus on innovative Teaching in all disciplines as well as student service practices. Our theme is “Great Expectations for Teaching and Learning.”
We are also responding to numerous requests to address an area of tremendous interest: educators-in-training. So, in addition to our previous presentation topic threads, we are adding a new thread, “Building a Toolkit for New Teachers,” which focuses on helpful information, practices, troubleshooting, and advice for those who are currently earning a degree in education, starting their teaching career, or new to the classroom.
Our Keynote Speaker this year is the popular, successful, and prolific artist Karl Frey! With over twenty years of experience, Prof. Frey will give a creative presentation on “Making a Case for Creativity” that shows what creativity requires, how creativity leads to success, how educators can design for it, and the 21st Century Skills that creativity supports.
This year our selection for the common read is the best-selling book, “The Hate U Give” by Angie Thomas. The book has recently been released as a movie and Mr. John Beck will lead a discussion of both the book and its film adaptation. Join us as we discuss the book and the movie and how to use pop
culture to explore tough topics in the classroom.
You Can Still Attend! Although the deadline to Register for the Conference was February 22, 2019, you can still attend the Conference: We will have laptops set up for all attendees to ‘check-in’ in the morning when they pick up their conference bags, and you can register at that time. 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.
In addition to new methods in pedagogy, this year we have multiple presentations on teaching online, teaching history, teaching science, using Virtual Reality, using free resources to enhance your class, and using easy new apps and video. Preview the Presentations so you can plan your Conference experience!
This year's presentation topics include:
- Building a Toolkit for New Teachers

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 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.
