The Focus on Teaching and Technology Conference (FTTC) is a Midwest regional conference focused on bringing together faculty and staff involved in course and curriculum development or academic technology support. Our mission is to provide an environment to share innovative ideas, leverage technology, and learn collaboratively across disciplines and institutions. FTTC aims to take advantage of the best of an online and in-person conference and reach the ever-changing needs of a diverse audience base by alternating modalities each year. For 2024, this two-day conference will house virtual sessions on Thursday, October 3and Friday, October 4, building on the flexibility and accessibility allowed by that format. In our in-person years, we will house workshops, interactive and engaging sessions, and lots of reflective and fun opportunities including our in-person Exhibit Hall! Each format offers an amazing opportunity for higher education faculty, administrators, staff, and students. Whether the roles of attendees involve course and curriculum development or academic technology support, FTTC provides a place to share and learn collaboratively. In addition, the conference offers a dynamic keynote speaker, faculty innovation idea-sharing, technology workshops, and vendor presentations. Our program evolves each year to reflect emerging trends in technology applications in higher education and shared expertise in online teaching experiences and strategies. Won't you come join us? 

The call for 2024 conference proposals closed on Friday, May 3, at 11:59 PM. The call for institutional partners and corporate sponsors is open until June 15. Conference registration opens July 1!
