Welcome to The International Sun Conference on Teaching and Learning

What is the Sun Conference?

The Sun Conference is dedicated to building a community of teachers primarily in higher education whose commitment to instructional excellence transcends disciplinary, cultural, and national barriers. The focus of the conference is on the scholarship of teaching and learning, as well as practical, applied strategies, tools, and techniques based on well-founded teaching and learning principles.

The Sun Conference aims to enhance teaching and learning, especially in the region and among minority serving institutions to help students become successful professionals and responsible citizens.

The conference includes scholarly presentations, round table discussions,  interactive workshops, and informal gatherings during breakfast and lunch, providing ample opportunity to explore questions, exchange ideas, and learn novel approaches to effective teaching and learning challenges in classroom, community/experience-based, or hybrid or online courses.
