The planning committee encourages your submissions! Accepted proposals will be presented in breakout sessions in Newcomb Hall. The expanded summit format for the day will include large-group and keynote sessions in the Newcomb Ballroom as well as the faculty-led breakout sessions.

The theme of this year’s Summit is “Engaging Students in Learning and Teaching” and we seek proposals related to this theme. Proposals that include a small team of faculty and students (undergrad and/or grad) are especially encouraged. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Engaging students as teaching and learning partners
  • Strategies for teaching large-enrollment courses
  • Active learning techniques
  • Use of technology in teaching and learning
  • Scholarship of teaching and learning
  • Use of flexible teaching spaces

Sessions will last 25 minutes and should include time for Q&A or other engaging activities. Proposals with a clear audience interactive/participatory approach are recommended.  Acceptable formats for the sessions include:

  • Interactive presentations – One or two presenters share a topic of interest in an innovative format that encourages audience participation.
  • Panel presentations – A group of several presenters share perspectives around a common topic.
  • Demonstration/simulation – One or two presenters share with the audience something they’ve built or created and describe the process
