Welcome to the CESTL! Sponsored by the Curriculum & Instruction and the School of Education, CESTL is a completely student-oriented conference on classroom teaching and learning at both the elementary and secondary school level. CESTL is organized by Professor Dengting Boyanton and all of her students currently taking her courses EDI 15A Psychological Perspective: Teaching & Learning, EDI 17 Psychology & Development of Adolescent Students, and EDI 600 Psychological Foundation of Education from the Curriculum & Instruction Department of the School of Education at the Long Island University (C. W. Post Campus).

The 5th CESTL will show research conducted by all of our student researchers throughout the Spring 2009 semester. Each student spent this whole semester investigating one research topic related to teaching and learning under Dr. Boyanton’s guidance and supervision. Specific research methods included classroom observations, interviews, class discussions, and self-reflections on teaching and learning.

The CESTL conference will cover a wide range of topics related to classroom teaching and learning including learning and motivation, learning environment, learning process, learning conditions, peer relationship and learning, parenting and learning, teacher characteristics and learning, learning disabilities, race and learning, culture and learning, technology and learning, and many more.

The CESTL keynote speaker will be Dr. Mark Birchette. Dr, Birchette is an Associate Professor of Biology and the Director of Teaching & Learning Initiative (TLI) program at Long Island University. Dr. Birchette will give a talk titled "Passion to Teach" and share his 16 years of teaching experiences at LIU.

The CESTL will also provide a Special Symposium on teaching and learning at the higher education level from the professors' perspective. Four LIU professors will join this symposium to share their experiences and perspectives. These four special speakers are: Dr. Arnold Dodge (Assistant Professor of Leadership & Administration), Dr. Lynn Cohen (Assistant Professor of Special Education & Literacy), Dr. Efleda Tolentino ( Assistant Professor of Early Childhood Education) and Dr. Dengting Boyanton ( Assistant Professor of Educational Psychology).

The CESTL is open to the public and anyone who has interest in our students’ research is welcome to attend! Please mark your calendar and join us in this exciting and inspiring event! We would greatly appreciate if you could also help us spread the news among your students, colleagues, friends, or whoever will be interested.

We look forward to seeing you in the 5th CESTL!
