Building KU's Teaching and Learning Community

KU Teaching Summit

The KU Summit is held before classes begin each August. The Center for Teaching Excellence, Provost’s Office, and KU Medical Center co-sponsor the conference for faculty and instructional staff members from the Lawrence, Edwards, and medical center campuses. There is an opening plenary session including a thematic keynote speaker and recognition of the recipient of CTE’s Departmental Teaching Award. This is followed by three waves of conference style breakout sessions led by faculty members, and boxed lunch final discussions with academic leaders.

Online registration for the current year's Summit usually opens in May. If you have questions or would like more information about this year's Summit, contact CTE at cte@ku.edu or by calling 785-864-4199.
