February 15-26


For the past seven years, Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education has presented Transforming the Teaching & Learning Environment, a totally virtual conference. Join us starting February 13, 2017 for our 8th annual edition. Over the course of two weeks we present 60 one-hour sessions. Each session is live and interactive. You’ll have the opportunity to engage with education professionals from all over the world. Topics have ranged from gamification to academic integrity to new technologies to many more.​  

The 60 one-hour sessions are all delivered live via Blackboard Collaborate and allow you to interact with the presenters and your fellow participants. Sessions are chosen by selecting the best and most current sessions from other conferences in the past year. We invite the presenters to do their sessions again—virtually. Presenters have been from all over the U.S, plus Nepal, Australia, Canada, and England. 

As always, the conference remains totally free to State System faculty and staff. External registrants will pay a registration fee. Please join your colleagues in this exciting and valuable event.​​​​

No standing in long security lines at the airport.
You can participate from your office, home, on the go, or at the beach.
No spending hundreds of dollars on travel and lodging.
