Presenter Information

Please choose your presentation type below for more information.

Practice sessions are 45-50 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 25 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.

Round table or conversation sessions are 45-50 minutes in length. These sessions are designed to provide a time and space for participants to discuss instructional issues within higher education teaching and learning. Facilitators will be asked to provide discussion questions in the proposal form and slides are not to be used. The focus is to facilitate conversation among session participants. Please note that conversation sessions are intentionally scheduled for active participation and discussion among those in the room.

Poster sessions allow for the discussion of scholarly research and/or practice addressing higher education pedagogy with conference participants in an informal scholarly environment. 

Posters may be presented as a slide show or a large-format poster. In addition to the poster file, presenters have the option to upload a 3 minute max video describing the poster (mp4 format). All files must be uploaded to the conference drop box by January 20 at noon. You will receive the drop box information via email.
