Please join us for our reimagined, virtual annual conference that will explore new and intriguing ideas, philosophies and practice for those involved in or interested in the advancement of post-secondary education in agricultural, environmental, natural and life sciences.

By attending the conference, you will connect with and learn from others who share the same passion for the improvement of teaching and learning. The annual NACTA conference will provide you with new teaching techniques, ideas and resources. It is also one of the best professional development activities for networking with other teaching professionals where the common discipline is “teaching.”

We will also conduct business of the association addressing proposed changes to our bylaws and recognize outstanding colleagues through our annual awards program.
