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 envision a faculty and staff life that involves active scholarship, candid and vibrant collaboration, dialogue around teaching and learning, and innovative activities that reflect the University’s mission. FOTL can support faculty and staff activity at all stages of development; work begun through this gathering can continue in myriad ways in faculty and staff life.  FOTL is free for members of the Loyola community.

The theme of the Spring 2014 semester conference is "Considering our Ignatian Tradition through Innovative and Creative Practice”. This theme is intended to assist us in linking the work that we are doing with the University’s mission and Jesuit Catholic tradition.

The keynote speaker is Dr. Laura Sponsler, Content Director of Civic Learning and Democratic Engagement in the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators (NASPA) Research and Policy Institute.  Dr. Sponsler will address the role of Ignatian thought in our teaching and research efforts.
