The Center for Teaching, Research and Learning is pleased to invite all faculty, staff, and students to propose sessions for the 2014 Ann Ferren Conference on Teaching, Research and Learning. These may include individual or panel presentations, round-table discussions or hands-on workshops.
Proposals are due by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, September 23, 2013. Sessions will be selected by the Ann Ferren Conference Planning Committee.
Sessions are one hour and fifteen minutes long, typically feature two or more presenters, and should be as interactive as possible.
In the session proposal form, you will be asked to provide the following information:
The names, affiliations and contact information of all presenters
The proposed title of your session
The session type
A summary of your session (consisting of up to 250 words), which should address: (1) the goal of the session; (2) who your target audience is; and (3) what you want your audience to think about, to be challenged by, and/or to do differently in their teaching and research as a result of your session.
A short description of your session (35-45 words), as you would like it to appear in the final conference program
Following the 2013 Ann Ferren Conference, CTRL asked attendees what session topics they would like to see at next year’s conference, and some of these suggestions are listed below. Feel free to use this list of session topic ideas as an inspiration for your own proposal:
