2017: Creating a Learning Culture: Conversations that Matter Collection home page

Conversations are the foundation of human relationships. A meaningful conversation – or a conversation that matters – can transcend culture and inspire us to explore, discuss and share. It is also the heart of teaching and learning. Palmer (2007) provides us guidelines to consider intentional conversations with colleagues to create a shared understanding of a teaching community. Likewise, Roxa & Mårtensson (2009) and Roxa, Mårtensson & Alveteg (2011) introduce us to the world of private, intellectual, and trustful conversations among a network of colleagues that can create and change learning culture. A model to include student voices in the teaching and learning conversation is explored by Werder, Ware, Thomas & Skogsbert (2010). What conversations do you have about teaching and learning? About creating a learning culture? We will discover together how these conversations create opportunities for teaching development and better understanding of student learning at the 2017 University of Calgary Conference on Postsecondary Learning and Teaching, Creating a Learning Culture: Conversations that Matter. After the conference, it is our hope that delegates will continue the conversation to influence the collaboration, change and culture around learning and teaching.

Held at the University of Calgary, May 2-3, 2017.
