The theme of this year's symposium, to be held in Homewood's Hodson Hall and also livestreamed, is Responding to Challenges With Creativity. The keynote address will be given by Sarah Stein Greenberg, the executive director of the Stanford and author of Creative Acts for Curious People.

The event—which also includes exhibits, demonstrations, networking opportunities, and a book signing—will explore teaching innovations at Johns Hopkins, including the work of DELTA grant recipients. According to its website, "the symposium is intended to provoke conversation, spark new thinking, and advance the ongoing pursuit of teaching excellence." Early registration is now open.

"We're thrilled to hold the DELTA Symposium in person again this year," says Ira Gooding, Provost's Fellow for Digital Initiatives. "It's an opportunity to not only learn about exciting innovations but also reconnect with colleagues around the common purpose of great teaching."

The DELTA initiative, which stands for Digital Education and Learning Technology Acceleration, was launched by the Provost's Office in 2018. To date, it has awarded 25 grants, totaling more than $1.5 million.
