2022 TEACH Conference: Sustainable Teaching and Learning, April 22, 2022


At the Spring 2022 TEACH Conference, we will explore what we have learned about, and what we can contribute to, sustainability in education. We aim to convene work in pedagogy around three major aspects of sustainability:

  • Sustainable practices of the pandemic.
  • Sustainability for the planet.
  • Sustainable work in teaching.

The conference includes a keynote address, student panel, a campus partners fair, and a variety of concurrent sessions. Concurrent sessions include interactive workshops, roundtable discussions, collaborative working groups, pedagogy demonstrations, and lightning talks. We will also provide breakfast, lunch, and a closing reception. 

The TEACH Conference will be held in person on Friday, April 22, 2022, from 8:00 AM to 4:15 PM at Paul Brest Hall at Stanford's main campus. 

Please note that this conference is entirely in-person. 

Register to attend

The conference is free, in-person, and open to all Stanford affiliates.
