How do we transform education, spark curiosity, drive innovation and prepare students to thrive in their chosen careers?
What does learning look like in a postsecondary institution that emphasizes entrepreneurial, creative and critical thinking? How do we design teaching and scholarship that are informed by and contribute to our local, national and international communities? Increasingly, experiential learning is prioritized in higher education. Students demand relevant and meaningful learning experiences and employers expect them to be equipped with the skills required by a changing workforce.

NEW! We've added a one-day pre-conference professional development workshop on Design for Experiential Learning: Integrating Critical Reflection and Assessment with Dr. Patti Clayton, PhD (only $100). Learn more about the pre-conference.
I always make time to come to the conference at the Taylor Institute, mostly because of the way it makes me feel part of a community. I get a chance to go out of my disciplinary walls and talk to people from other areas and they give you so many ways of sharing your ideas and presenting your ideas.
