The Teaching Professor Conference provides a thought-provoking forum for educators of all disciplines and experience levels to share best practices that advance college teaching and learning. The three-day conference features pre-conference workshops that provide hands-on learning, provocative plenary presentations, carefully selected concurrent sessions on a range of relevant topics, poster presentations highlighting the latest research, and ample opportunities for conversations with fellow attendees.

In the Fall of 2016 Peggy attended along with Angela Usha Ramnarine-Rieks and Michael Fudge. After each conference a workshop is scheduled to share new information learned from attending the conference. The topics for this workshop were:
• Reading Across the Curriculum
• Exploring Backward Design Approach for Curriculum Development
• Student Engagement
