10th Annual Teaching & Learning Symposium, 2014: Call for Proposals

The 2014 application process is now closed.

We invite UW faculty, staff and students to present their Scholarship of Teaching and Learning work at the 2014 UW-Seattle Teaching and Learning Symposium – Tuesday, April 15th 2:00 – 4:30 at the HUB Ballroom.

The Symposium is designed for interactive presentations and discussion among participants.  You are invited to present your work as a poster, and you are welcome to bring handouts or use other media that will help demonstrate your work.



  • Proposal must be received by Tuesday, February 18th.
  • Acceptances will be confirmed by Monday, March 3rd.
  • Confirmation of your intent to present by Monday, March 10th.
  • Full program (titles, abstracts & presenters) will be posted on our website by Monday, March 31st.

Symposium Schedule – Tuesday, April 15, 2014:

2:00 Welcome
2:15 – 3:00 Poster Session I
3:00 – 3:45 Keynote Talk
3:45 – 4:30 Poster Session II

Poster Sessions:

  • Plan to have your poster on display for the full event.
  • Your poster will be assigned to one of the two poster sessions.  This will allow those presenters who do not have a co-presenter to visit other posters and talk with other presenters during their un-assigned session.  If a poster has more than one presenter, typically there is one presenter at the poster for both sessions.

Proposal Submission Process

You will be asked to provide the following information:

  1. Names and contact information for all co-presenters, as you want them listed in the program
  2. A title (10-word maximum)
  3. A brief (300-word maximum) abstract which addresses all of the following questions:
    1. Research Question: What were you trying to find out or better understand?
    2. Context: What are relevant characteristics of your setting – course, type of students, etc.?
    3. Methods: What did you do to assess the impact of your project on student learning?
    4. Results: What did you learn by approaching your teaching in this way?
    5. Discussion: What do you see as the implications and/or importance of your work?

Successful proposals will:

  • Address all five questions above;
  • Effectively communicate your work to readers from other disciplines; and
  • Be publishable, as is, in the Symposium program and on our website.

Note: Graduate student presenters may apply to the Donald H. Wulff Fund to cover the costs of poster printing.
