An In-person Conference at La Salle University, Philadelphia, PA
Saturday, April 15, 2023
The theme of the conference is:
“Need to Know: Engaging Student Interest”
The conference will be held on Saturday, April 15th and will run from 9:00 AM until 4:00 PM with concurrent sessions throughout the day. We expect to share new experiential exercises and thought-provoking discussions on teaching what matters to our students.
More on the theme…
The term "need to know," often describes restricting information, making it difficult to learn and access knowledge. However, the term can also refer to what we need to be effective in our careers and learning communities.
We have some ideas about what our Gen Z students want to know. As a group, immersed in technology and social networking, they are community-focused and believe more in action than words. They care about the planet and freedom of expression. They also are skeptical of experts and that includes their professors.
Our challenge: How do we shape courses and experiential learning to provide what our students need to know but also engage them, so they get what they want to know.
MOBTC 2023 will focus on creating effective learning experiences. What learning designs can we re-engineer? What are some new activities that have come out of your post-pandemic thinking about student engagement? What works in some, most, or all the teaching modalities we now use? What are the ideas and media that produce meaningful course learning?
As always, MOBTC’s emphasis is on “hands-on” learning. The program will offer innovative experiential exercises as well as a timely discussion of our current teaching experience.

Your proposal (2-3 pages) should state 1) what you will do, 2) how you will do it, 3) how much time you will need. The hallmark of MOBTC is “hands-on” learning. Your presentations should be a demonstration for class use rather than a description of what was done. Please plan for the active involvement of session participants. Proposals should be original or an innovative redesign of existing work.
