Share your teaching ideas: Proposals for UW Teaching and Learning Symposium due Jan, 24

Each of us holds a spark that can ignite a student’s interest and set them on the path to discovery. When we work together to share our ideas, we can transform the educational experience for our students and for ourselves.

“Transforming Educaiton is the theme of the 2014 UW-Madison Teaching and Learning Symposium. If you have a good idea you’d like to share, submit your proposal by January 24. And plan to attend the event on May 19-20 at Union South.

We seek proposals for engaging sessions that spotlight transformations in all corners of UW-Madison’s teaching and learning experiences, such as:

  • approaches that change traditional classrooms by rethinking the role of engagement, scholarship, mindfulness, or technology
  • innovations that span disciplines
  • connections that transform how we collaborate and that enable us to be more effective, more efficient, or happier in our teaching work
  • student engagement in the development or implementation of new modes of learning to augment and grow their own educational experiences

Faculty, staff, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students are all welcome to submit proposals. Proposed presentations should be 60 minutes long and feature clear plans for hands-on, participatory, or experiential learning.  To submit a proposal, please go to the website and complete the proposal form.

There will be a separate call for posters soon.
