As a member of the UW-Whitewater community, you are invited to submit a session proposal for the campus event Celebrating Teaching and Learning: Strategies that Transform Lives. This special forum is meant to showcase the wide variety of ways we are all transforming the lives of our students through teaching and learning. The forum will be held on May 18th, 2017.
We are soliciting proposals for two types of sessions: Presentations and Discussions. Proposals are due
March 17, 2017 April 7th, 2017
Concurrent Presentation Sessions will consist of 45 minute presentations with presenters having 30 minutes to discuss their topic and 15 minutes for questions and answers. Accepted presenters will receive $100, maximum of two presenters per session. We encourage proposals in the following themes:
- Supporting Student Success: Topics may include showcasing high impact practices, sharing learner engagement strategies, discussing different ways of supporting students in courses, incorporating active learning strategies, or ways you assess student learning.
- Managing Instructor Workload: Common topics include include tips and tricks for managing assignments, feedback, or anything else you’ve found useful!
- Fostering Inclusivity, Diversity, and Cultural Fluency: Example topics include include effective discussions, cultural intelligence, advocacy, relationship building, and inclusive excellence.
- 21st Century Challenges and Opportunities: Topics may include integrating technology into teaching, sharing ways to increase student responsibility and accountability, integrating deep learning approaches into teaching,managing BYOD (bring your own device) for course activities, and preparing students for 21st century skills (e.g., evaluating information, being a digital collaborator).
- ePortfolio: ePortfolio has become a fantastic tool for students to display their work to employers, as well as for instructors, programs, and institutions to assess student work toward established outcomes. If you are using the ePortfolio at the course or programmatic level, please share what you’re doing!
- Something Else: Have an idea that doesn’t fit into the themes above? That’s okay! Submit your idea using the “Something Else” theme!
