Lilly-Austin is part of the overall Lilly Conference Series. For nearly 40 years, Lilly Conferences have provided opportunities for the presentation of the scholarship of teaching and learning. Our participants represent educators at all stages in their academic careers in nearly every discipline found in higher education. We invite those who share an interest in improving student learning to join us at Lilly-Austin!



Austin, is the "live music capital of the world", a burgeoning cultural center filled with art and live entertainment, and ranks in the top 10 U.S. cities for BBQ! It has gained popularity as a travel destination by foodies, music lovers, and families alike. The conference venue offers a complimentary shuttle for our participants to access famous 6th Street, and the Domain.

2020 Plenary Presenters

Coming from out of town? We have arranged discounted room nights both before and after the conference so that participants may arrive/depart at times that will allow you to attend the entire conference. Consider arriving Wednesday night to get settled and start Day 1 in the proper mindset; and/or departing Sunday morning to ensure you're able to stay until the end of Day 3 . Make the most of the trip by giving yourself: enough downtime to reflect; the opportunity to participate in all sessions that interest you; and the chance to network and socialize with colleagues and explore the wonderful city of Austin!
