HILT's fifth annual conference will showcase varied interactive instructional approaches and considerations for Harvard in an evolving education landscape. See the full conference program and breakout session descriptions.

The annual goals of the HILT Annual Conference are to: 

  1. promote dialogue across Harvard’s campuses about educational innovation, including constructive discussion of provocative, thoughtful, and contrasting perspectives;
  2. provide examples of experimental approaches and research studies that generalize across academic fields, in particular those that help faculty think through how to experiment in their own teaching with the practical insights that come from those examples; and 
  3. extend the network of Harvard scholars, instructors, senior leaders, academic professionals, and students who are improving educational practice.
