APS Institute on Teaching and Learning


June 21-24, 2022

Join the American Physiological Society Institute for their fourth APS Institute on Teaching and Learning (ITL). This biennial conference features best practices in evidence-based teaching and learning and helps faculty and trainees develop publishable educational research initiatives.

The conference will include presentations from established educators and researchers who will serve as speakers and workshop facilitators. Interactive workshop activities will include modeling inclusive teaching methods and innovative teaching techniques. Presenters will bring their expertise from outside the field of physiology to ITL participants. Conference keynote and plenary speakers will highlight inclusive teaching methods and the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion in higher education.

ITL will provide an opportunity for networking and the exchange of breakthrough ideas and best practices in physiology education. In addition, the conference will offer mentorship opportunities focused on practical skills training and career development for early-career educators. The program will engage physiologists and other STEM educators from diverse institutions across the U.S. that reach underserved students and those across the education spectrum from undergraduate to graduate and professional levels. The conference will support collaborations among participants of all levels, including new, mid-career and experienced educators.
