The 2021 Dalhousie Conference on University Teaching and Learning is being supported by Centre for Learning and Teaching to enable free attendance for presenters and participants.

Students enter and leave their post-secondary education with a multiplicity of commitments and identities that inform their experiences as learners.

The majority of 21st-century students juggle jobs, family, health, and finances, in addition to coursework and planning for the future. 

Teaching the whole person – encompassing mind, body, heart, and spirit – addresses these competing pressures by affirming students’ and instructors’ humanity.

According to Schoem, Modey and St. John (2017), supporting the whole student through teaching and learning provides a number of benefits by increasing “student commitment to learning because students see themselves as part of an engaged, supportive and caring scholarly community” (p. xii). How do we consider these factors as we educate the whole student at our institutions?

The DCUTL is a great experience for higher education enthusiasts to come together and explore new ideas and ways to educate students!
