Call for Proposals

Proposals are being accepted for April 29th, 2023 presentations.

Proposals are being now being accepted for 60-minute sessions. Please indicate if your session will be offered on-campus or hybrid (on-campus & virtually).  

This year’s conference theme is: “Personalizing the Learning Journey”   

Teaching in today’s college classroom involves navigating many competing demands, particularly as we begin the transition away from pandemic-driven strategies. The conference theme encourages presenters to reflect on how we can embrace technology-enhanced teaching, consider the needs of diverse student populations, and empower students to take active roles in their education.  

Presentations will focus on one or more of the following subthemes:  

  • Student success in transitioning learning spaces (e.g., teaching the post-pandemic student, online/hybrid/HyFlex teaching)  
  • Supporting achievement among diverse students (e.g., focus on accessibility, flexible learning, anti-racist approaches, decolonization)  
  • Instructor tool kits to support student learning (e.g., technology-enhanced teaching, hands-on learning experiences, methods for developing practical skills)  

Proposals will be reviewed based on the following criteria:  

  • Relevance of the proposal to the conference theme  
  • Topic connection to current practices in teaching and learning  
  • Plans for how attendees will be engaged in the session 
  • Clear session outcomes and overall clarity of the proposal
