iTeach 2024 a Huge Success

iTeach 2024 LogoOn Wednesday January 10, the CTL hosted a successful revival of our iTeach Conference.  Nearly 200 members of the WashU community gathered in the Brown School’s Hillman Hall for a full day of teaching related presentations, workshops, and panel discussions.  The first iTeach was held in 2006 and then bi-annually until 2018.  After a pandemic break, we were delighted to bring this event back in 2024.

The day began with welcomes from Provost Beverly Wendland and CTL Executive Director Michael Wysession, followed by an activity where participants got to know a bit about each other by responding to a series of teaching-focused questions.  The energy and engagement generated by that activity carried on into the sessions that lasted through the day.

One of the goals of this year’s revival was to incorporate more faculty voices into what had been a largely CTL-led event, and we had a great response.  Nearly 70 faculty and staff were willing to share their teaching-related insights and innovations in 20 concurrent sessions.  We heard presentations that ranged from adapting to Chat GPT to decolonizing the curriculum.   Many presenters shared their materials via a special Canvas course set up for iTeach. If you were unable to attend and would like access to the conference material please send a request to and we will add you the course roster.

Additional support for iTeach 2024 was provided by Arts and Sciences Computing, University Libraries and the Office of the Provost.
