The Eighth Annual Innovations in Pedagogy Summit will virtually bring together faculty, staff, and students from across UVA and beyond to explore the theme, Fostering Curiosity, Wonder, and Creativity for All Students, particularly as it relates to enhancing diversity, equity and inclusion. Educators have the opportunity to both create and foster learning environments where students’ curiosity, wonder, and creativity can flourish. But what does this look like—in and out of the classroom, in person and virtually, in small courses and large—and how do we ensure we are creating spaces where all students thrive?
We invite proposals from across UVA, as well as from other colleges and universities, for two session types: 45-minute interactive workshops and 10-12 minute pre-recorded presentations. The deadline for proposal submission is Monday, February 22, 2021.
At this year’s virtual Summit, we will explore the varied, complex, and interconnected ways that we can create equitable learning environments that foster curiosity, wonder, and creativity for all students. Sessions should highlight concrete, equity-focused strategies for creating learning environments conducive to fostering curiosity, wonder, and/or creativity for all students and may address questions such as the following:

These 45-minute virtual interactive workshops give participants an opportunity to do hands on work, reflection, and/or practice around a topic or question. They can include brief presentations by the facilitators, but the main goal of the session should be the active engagement of participants through structured activities. Collaboratively facilitated sessions that include a team of faculty, students (undergraduate and/or graduate), staff, and/or community partners are especially encouraged. An interactive session can have up to 5 presenters.
To submit an interactive workshop proposal you will need to prepare the following:
These 10-12-minute pre-recorded presentations give presenters an opportunity to share concrete and adaptable teaching ideas or the results of their engagement in the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL). Presentations on teaching ideas and strategies should not simply be a “show and tell” of the presenter’s experience but should frame the strategies in a wider pedagogical context and should be explicit about how participants might adopt or adapt the ideas. Presentations on SoTL should disseminate the findings of the presenter’s original SoTL research and discuss how this research can benefit other instructors. A short presentation can have 1 or 2 presenters.
To submit a short presentation proposal, you will need to prepare the following:
