Annual Conference

The Harvard Initiative for Learning and Teaching annual conference is an event designed to engage Harvard faculty (and some students and academic professionals) in a university-level dialogue about teaching and learning innovation. 

The fall 2017 HILT Conference on "Evaluating teaching" took place on Wednesday, September 20, 2017 at Wasserstein Hall. Thank you to all our attendees and participants for engaging in this year's conference! Please check back here in the coming days for resources from the event.

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.
