The Connecting Research and Teaching Conference at Cornell University brings together future and current faculty with professional development experts to discuss research projects that inform and improve teaching and learning.

Since 2011, Cornell has run a Classroom Research and Teaching Symposium each spring where graduate students, postdocs, and faculty can present the results of their research into effective teaching practices. This is now a day-long conference that is open to attendance and presentation by individuals at other colleges and universities.

Overview of the Connecting Research and Teaching Conference

Attendees/presenters will have an opportunity to engage with colleagues on a variety of research on teaching topics presented as papers, posters and roundtable discussions. Conference panelists will share their experiences and lessons learned while designing research on teaching projects as well as experiences with innovative pedagogy. At the conclusion of the conference, there will be opportunities to debrief the conference experience and network with others interested in connecting research and teaching. Faculty members and graduate students who have conducted research, or wish to do so, are encouraged to submit a proposal to present their findings at the conference.

To register to present, please see the Call for Papers/Proposals announcement. Direct questions about proposals and submit proposals to Dr. Kimberly Williams.

For a detailed schedule please view the Workshop Information page.

This workshop is sponsored by Cornell University’s Center for Teaching Innovation and the Cornell University Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning (CU-CIRTL).

Who should attend the Connecting Research and Teaching Conference?

Graduate students, postdocs, faculty and staff interested in learning more about doing research to inform teaching and learning and about innovative pedagogy can attend research presentations and roundtable discussions on these topics. Those who have their own research on teaching and learning should submit a proposal to present in oral or poster form. Those who are just starting research on teaching and learning or would like to share experiences with implementing innovative pedagogy may want to lead a roundtable discussion on the topic.
