Teaching and Learning Symposium call for proposals

This year’s Teaching and Learning Symposium will focus on ways that the teaching and learning community at UW-Madison is extending its reach beyond the boundaries of the traditional classroom to reach all learners.

We seek proposals for engaging sessions that highlight current and future campus initiatives, build on research, help colleagues make improvements based on past experiences, emphasize ways to bring the broader Wisconsin community into the learning process, or extend our impact beyond the traditional boundaries of campus.

Specifically, we are looking for proposals from faculty, staff, postdocs, and graduate students that address:

  • Actions that new and experienced teachers can take to extend their reach to new learners and communities (
  • Approaches to enhance learning through excellence, inclusivity, and innovation
  • Strategies that apply research and the scholarship of teaching and learning to the learning experience
  • Methods to assess student learning and examples of using assessment data to improve teaching and learning
  • Strategies used to align our classes with the essential learning outcomes and high impact practices (
  • Steps we can take to employ technology-enhanced learning

Proposed presentations should be 30, 60, or 90 minutes long. The format should be either a workshop (e.g., hands-on or experiential sessions) or a learning circle (e.g., structured discussions).
