On Thursday, March 31, 2022, the Teaching, Learning, and Curriculum Department at Andrews University in partnership with Berrien Springs Public Schools, will host its 19th annual conference. The AUTLC invites proposals for scholarly work, posters, and best practice sessions from university faculty, PreK-12 teachers, graduate and undergraduate students, and other education professionals. This year’s conference theme is Everyone is Called: Meeting Diverse Students Needs in Difficult Times.

This year the conference will be virtual with the keynote address having in-person and virtual options. This will allow educators from around the world to share reports of significant work or integrative reviews in theory, research, development, applications, and societal issues related to all aspects of education. Best Practices session presenters will discuss and demonstrate strategies, techniques, or solutions to common issues in education. This will be an opportunity to inform attendees about the lessons learned and future plans from those who have designed, developed, and implemented education in effective and/or innovative ways especially in the face of challenging and uncertain times. Individuals and groups can submit proposals. To accommodate the demand, all presentations will be limited to 15 minutes with 5 minutes for Q&A and transition to the next presenter. All events of the AUTLC are free of charge.
