International Conference on
Best Teaching Practices for Engaged Student Learning

(February 13-15, 2020)

Teaching Learning Centre (TLC) of BITS Pilani is organizing an international conference on Best Teaching Practices for Engaged Student Learning. The new global knowledge economy which is driven by information and communication, has significantly changed the way universities and higher educational institutions function. This is compounded by the expectations of contemporary students who are learning focused, achievement driven and rely extensively on technology for their support. In this changing milieu, educational institutes will have to identify innovative ways to create value for their students and remain relevant. The aim of this conference is to bring together academicians, administrators, researchers, technologists and industry personnel to share valuable insights and engage in thought provoking discussions on collaborative learning that would enhance the students’ engagement in learning, thereby nurturing all-round students’ growth. The conference would focus on techniques, methods and pedagogies that would help educational institutions effectively use their resources and enhance the overall learning experience for students and pave the way for mutual longstanding collaborations.

The conference will have keynote sessions, workshops and poster presentations related to the theme of the conference.

Topics to be discussed and deliberated include, but are not limited to:

  • Evidence-based pedagogies that improve student learning
  • Enhancing classroom experience for better student learning
  • Human factor in personalized learning
  • Creating inclusive classrooms
  • Technology-infused, yet person-driven learning
  • Enhancing the teacher-student relationship to foster a better learning environment
  • Teaching philosophies for better student engagement
  • Outcome-based learning
