Get Students to Focus on Learning Instead of Grades:
Metacognition is the Key


21st Century students come to college with widely varying academic skills, approaches to learning, and motivation levels. Faculty often lament that students are focused on achieving high grades, but are not willing to invest much time or effort in learning.

For ​over ​20 ​years, ​the ​HBCU ​Faculty ​Development ​Network ​has ​provided ​an ​avenue ​for ​faculty, ​administrators, ​and ​program ​support ​personnel ​to ​make ​presentations ​and ​to ​highlight ​effective ​teaching ​and ​learning ​as ​well ​as ​those ​programs ​that ​support ​the ​academic ​function ​at ​institutions ​of ​higher ​education. ​

We cordially invite you to participate in the 23rd Annual HBCU Faculty Development Network Conference to be held in New Orleans, Louisiana October 20-22, 2016.

This year's conference theme is

"Transforming the Teaching and Learning Environment"


The conference offers three full days of workshops, concurrent sessions, round-table discussions, plenary sessions, and a poster session. The conference provides an excellent opportunity for participants to network and exchange ideas proven successful in teaching and learning, network with colleagues, and develop practical skills that can be put to immediate use upon return to their respective institutions. Each will take away from this conference, useful information that works and will assist you in enhancing your current role. We invite faculty, administrators, and personnel of all areas that support the academic program to submit proposals for consideration at this year's conference that support our theme of "Transforming the Teaching and Learning Environment." Conference proposals should be in line with one of the strands.
