Celebration of Teaching

Celebration of Teaching logo

Let’s come together to refresh, reflect, and celebrate our community. In the midst of unprecedented times, we are preparing for the 12th Annual Celebration of Teaching at MU. We have endured historic disruption and yet have seen our community pull together for each other and for our students. We are thankful every day for the vast and diverse team of educators who have contributed to our resilience and strength, and we invite you all to join us virtually on May 19th & 20th to celebrate our community.

This year, our event features thought leaders from Mizzou and beyond on topics relating to Online Teaching and Learning, with a focus on Universal Design for Learning, and much more. These offerings will provide a welcome opportunity to connect with colleagues over discussions of how to implement strategic practices to enhance student learning.

The Celebration of Teaching is a professional development opportunity at the University of Missouri where teaching professionals and instructional support staff can:

  • Share approaches and techniques that colleagues have developed in their own teaching
  • Engage with colleagues from other disciplines about teaching and learning
  • Learn from exciting guest experts on important teaching topics
  • Win prizes for attending professional development events throughout the year

We will celebrate the highlights and achievements of the academic year including:

  • Kemper award winners
  • Campus Teaching Excellence awards
  • Authors published in trade and university publications during the previous year
