Call for Proposals: 2016 Teaching & Learning Symposium

Learning assumes many forms. By tailoring pedagogy, curriculum and learning spaces, learning can be personalized to meet the different learning needs and aspirations of students. Through the use of active and inclusive teaching practices, instructors can create learning environments that value students life experiences, promote deeper learning and inspire critical inquiry.

The 2016 Teaching and Learning Symposium taking place May 18-19 aims to bring campus together to share ideas about student learning, collaborate with colleagues and discover unexpected networks. The theme is: Engage Students, Personalize Learning.

Proposals are wanted for engaging presentations and posters that spotlight learning across campus and specifically address one or more of the following topics:

  • Learning assessment or analytics
  • Active or experiential learning
  • Curriculum design
  • Inclusivity in the classroom, engaging learners with sensitive topics and issues
  • Personalized learning models
  • Student well-being
  • Technology-enhanced learning

Proposed presentations should be 60 minutes long, connect to the symposium theme and feature clear plans for the audience to participate in the session. Posters submissions should have a clear purpose and also connect to the symposium theme.

Faculty, staff, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students are all welcome to submit proposals.

The deadline to submit proposals is Sunday, January 24, 2016. Presentation and poster submission forms can be found at:
