Focus on Teaching and Learning

Focus on Teaching and Learning

FOTL is a collaborative effort by several academic-support units to provide an opportunity for sharing effective practice for teaching and learning at Loyola University Chicago.



AUGUST 14, 2014, 8:30am-4pm


The Loyola University Chicago bi-annual Focus on Teaching & Learning (FOTL) conference is dedicated to the belief that as educators, we can grow and develop by learning through one another. We seek to contribute to a faculty and staff life that involves active scholarship, candid and vibrant collaboration, and innovative activities that reflect the University’s mission. Our hope is that FOTL can support faculty activity at all stages of development, and that work begun through this gathering can continue in myriad ways in faculty life.
