About the Conference:
The 2015 Transformative Learning Conference challenges participants to demonstrate evidence-based classroom practices. Transformative learning, integrative learning, interdisciplinary learning, and holistic learning are prominent approaches in current college teaching and learning practice. Since 2009, The University of Central Oklahoma formalized a campus-wide transformative learning initiative in both curricular and co-curricular learning and has hosted conferences for several years. Past Transformative Learning Conferences have featured keynoters Vincent Tinto, Melissa Peet, and Dan Glisczinski!

Dr. Eric Mazur
Dr. Eric Mazur, author of Peer Instruction: A User’s Manual, will present the keynote session on Friday morning, March 27, and will conduct a 3-hour pre-conference workshop on Thursday afternoon, March 26. Read Preconference Workshop Description Read Keynote Description
Dr. Mazur is famous for his work in actively engaging students in their learning as a means of reaching key conceptual understandings. He is a pioneer in “flipping” classrooms and is renowned as an educator of college faculty. Peer instruction and other strategies employed by Dr. Mazur are effective in prompting Transformative Learning, and we’re delighted he’ll be sharing ideas and strategies at the conference.
Recognition for his contributions to college instructional practice came with the recent announcement of Dr. Mazur as the inaugural recipient of the Minerva Award, the “Nobel for university teaching and learning.”
