About the Conference

Teaching Matters is celebrating its thirteenth annual conference in 2015 at Gordon State College on its main campus (Barnesville, Georgia); this year's theme is Celebrating Creativity in the Classroom. The conference is open to all of those who have a passion for pedagogy; conference presentations are designed so that educators can share ideas and strategies that promote student success, student engagement, and active learning.



Presenters are responsible for their own conference registration and fee, travel and lodging. Presenters are also encouraged to attend other sessions and participate in as much of the conference as their schedules allow over the two day period.
