Higher Education

Keeping college and university students engaged, connected, and inspired is no easy task. Higher education professionals balance many needs, from research to instructional design to tech integration, all while considering the future of education. It’s why we created the TCEA Convention & Exposition. We wanted to provide you plenty of sessions that provide insights for effective post-secondary learning.

“The many opportunities for teachers to use innovative methods of teaching in the classroom was simply amazing.”

Keeping college and university students engaged, connected, and inspired is no easy task. Higher education professionals balance many needs, from research to instructional design to tech integration, all while considering the future of education. It’s why we created the TCEA Convention & Exposition. We wanted to provide you plenty of sessions that provide insights for effective post-secondary learning.

What does your ticket to the TCEA Convention & Exposition get you?

Bring back strategies that actually work. Discover techniques that you can incorporate quickly and easily.

Learn your way. We know how busy you are. It’s why we created interactive and on-demand sessions that allow you to learn at your own pace. You can embrace a full learning experience (and in your PJs — we won’t judge) through March 5.

Amplify your value. Discover how to add to your skill set in order to collaborate on any project.

Create engaging education. Learn about the latest tools and tech to help educators easily create compelling content.

Dr. Kate Biberdorf is a chemist, science entertainer, and professor at The University of Texas. Through her theatrical and hands-on approach to teaching, Dr. Biberdorf is breaking down the image of the stereotypical scientist, while reaching students who might otherwise be intimidated by science. Students’ emotional responses, rather than rote memorization of facts, are key to Biberdorf’s dynamic approach to her program, as well as science in general. Her exciting and engaging program leaves audiences with a positive, memorable impression of science — all while diminishing the stigma around women in science. She has appeared on The Today Show, The Kelly Clarkson Show, NBC Nightly News, the Wendy Williams Show, the Rachael Ray Show, and Late Night with Stephen Colbert.
