CSU Symposium + PolyTeach

April 13 & 14, 2018

Welcome to the Cal Poly Pomona PolyTeach “Technology and the Innovative University” and the 20 th Annual CSU Symposium on University Teaching Joint Conference! Please save the dates -- April 13 & 14, 2018.

The theme of the joint conference is “Productive Disruption.” We chose this theme because a person’s future shouldn’t depend on their zip code, and there’s one big thing that shakes up the situation: Education. That, of course, is where the CSU comes in.

All CSU faculty and staff are cordially invited to attend the conference. Presenters will be notified of acceptance in mid-January. Register for the conference now! 

Conference registration will open in mid to late November; registration is $30 each day, or $55 for both days. Teaching & learning centers at many of the CSUs are offering small grants to support participation in the event, so be sure to ask your campus faculty development director if this is the case for your campus. (Cal Poly Pomona faculty, your Friday registration is free.)
