Call for Proposals

We invite you to submit proposals for this year’s virtual conference in two formats - SoTL Briefs and Innovative Teaching Talk sessions.

All proposals should focus on teaching and/or student learning in higher education and should address how pedagogy developed in the context of one discipline can be adapted to other disciplines. Only proposals aimed at higher education audiences are eligible for this conference. 
Submission Deadline:

SoTL Briefs

SoTL Briefs are appropriate for sharing the findings of traditional SoTL studies or syntheses of current research on a topic appropriate for a SoTL audience. Proposals must include information about the study design, rationale, methodology, and findings. Qualitative, quantitative, and mixed method research designs are welcomed. Studies can be multidisciplinary or focus on a single discipline; those that focus on a single discipline should include ways the findings might be adapted to other disciplinary contexts. Twenty minutes will be allotted for each SoTL Brief, with five minutes of transition time in between presentations. SoTL Briefs will be paired by the conference staff in bundles of two to be delivered during a 45-minute concurrent session.

Innovative Teaching Talks 

Teaching Talk sessions provide presenters a chance to share an innovative teaching idea or classroom experience that has not yet been subjected to formal study. Grouped with other similar sessions, these 10-minute “lightning talks” will allow attendees to walk away with a variety of new ideas that they can immediately implement in their classrooms. This format is ideal for those who have a great teaching idea to share but who have not collected and analyzed data in a formal way. Innovative Teaching Talk sessions will be bundled by conference staff in groups of three to be delivered during a 45-minute concurrent session, with five minutes transition and question time between sessions.
