Presenter Information

Call for proposals opens July 1 and closes August 31, 2024.

Presentation Types

Practice sessions are 45 minutes in length. Practice sessions are focused on sharing, modeling, and discussing higher education teaching and learning, while allowing for interaction with and among session participants. These sessions should go beyond simply "how to" to include "why to." Interactivity with participants is strongly encouraged.  

Research session presentations are 20 minutes in length. Research sessions are designed to inform participants of the design, implementation, and results of empirical research focused on teaching and learning in higher education. Please note that two research presentations are scheduled together for each presentation block. A timekeeper will be present in the room to ensure the first presentation does not exceed the allotted time.

Poster sessions allow for the discussion of scholarly research and/or practice addressing higher education pedagogy with conference participants in an informal scholarly environment. The Poster Session is on Thursday, February 13 from 4:00-6:00 p.m.

Roundtable discussions are 45 minutes in length and are designed to engage with other attendees around a central topic, idea, or research area. Submissions should identify the pedagogical topic of importance and provide specificity about what they plan to discuss in the context of teaching and learning in higher education.
