Students as Partners in Teaching and Learning
The conference theme, “Students as Partners in Teaching and Learning,” encourages us to examine and promote students-as-partners strategies for teaching and learning that encourage deep, transferable academic experiences.
Do you have an exceptional strategy to share? Do you have a new theory or practice that might enhance teaching and learning, faculty development, educational practices, or student engagement at your institution and beyond? Presenters are encouraged to engage their audience, so preference will be given to those submissions that specify how this engagement will be provided.
Threads might include but are not limited to:
- Use of technology to enhance students-as-partners in teaching and learning
- Creative instructional techniques that engage students in partnership experiences
- Faculty development initiatives, programs, and processes that promote students-as-partners in teaching and learning
- New ways to use Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) to enhance student partnerships in teaching and learning
- Strategies for incorporating diversity, culturally responsive pedagogy, and/or inclusive excellence into students-as-partners teaching and learning models and designs
- High-Impact Educational Practices that enhance students as partners in teaching and learning
- Student perspectives on partnerships in teaching and learning.

Types of sessions:
Individual Presentation (Single Presenter)
A 20-minute session that includes time for a 15-minute presentation and 5 minutes of questions and answers. Most feature a successful program, practice, or key issue related to pedagogy/teaching and learning. Accepted presenters will be paired with another presenter.
Panel Presentation (Multiple Presenters)
A 45-minute session that includes time for a 20-25 minute presentation and 15-20 minutes of questions and answers. Most panels feature 3-5 panelists who explore a certain pedagogical topic or technique from different viewpoints. Panelists may discuss research and/or experience they may have on the topic.
A 45-minute session where the presenter facilitates a learning experience in which attendees develop or explore teaching and learning techniques through practice. Presenters are expected to facilitate a well-planned and interactive session.
Roundtable Discussions provide a more personal and interactive setting for exploring key issues in pedagogy/teaching and learning. Discussion leaders facilitate substantive discussions or small group activities, for approximately 45 minutes, where participants collaborate to better understand the topic of interest.
Posters should visually convey innovative research and/or experience in the area of pedagogy/teaching and learning. They typically take the form of an exhibit and should include brief narratives, data, and graphics that quickly summarize the presenter's topic. Computer displays, handouts, directions to websites, QR codes, and other materials can also be incorporated into the poster. Presenters will be expected to informally discuss their presentations with conference attendees.
Digital Installation (lunch)
Installations should visually convey innovative research and/or experience in the area of pedagogy/teaching and learning. They typically take the form of an interactive or responsive exhibit and can also include brief narratives, data, and graphics that quickly summarize the presenter's topic. Presenters will be expected to informally discuss their digital installations with conference attendees in an interactive format.
Proposal deadline: Wednesday, February 26, 2020 to be considered.
