Lilly Conference

Lilly-Austin Conference

The Lilly Conference for College and University Teaching and Learning formed over 35 years ago with the purpose of providing a platform for presentations in the scholarship of teaching and learning. Austin has hosted the conference for the past eight years. The Lilly-Austin Conference is part of the Lilly series of conferences held in different cities nationally, and internationally. The Lilly-Austin Conference is not only a wonderful opportunity to learn and develop as educators, but also a great opportunity to network.

Participants come from across the United States, representing nearly every discipline found in higher education, including faculty and administrators. They are at various stages of their academic careers ranging from post­ doctoral positions, adjunct faculty, new faculty, mid­-career faculty, seasoned faculty, and even emeritus faculty. The conference maintains the same overall theme: “Evidence-Based Teaching and Learning.” Learn more.
