San Diego


Lilly-San Diego is part of the overall Lilly Conference Series which have provided opportunities for the presentation of the scholarship of teaching and learning for nearly 40 years. 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 to exchange ideas and build a repertoire of skills that can be put to immediate use.



Participants will be able to explore all this amazing city has to offer, including the Gaslamp Quarter, Balboa Park, the San Diego Zoo, Old Town San Diego, and Seaport Village in the evenings. The conference venue, the DoubleTree San Diego-Mission Valley, is conveniently located next to a trolley stop, which offers easy transportation to a variety of the city’s top attractions.
