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:
2:15 – 3:00 Poster Session I
3:00 – 3:45 Keynote Talk
3:45 – 4:30 Poster Session II
- 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:
- Names and contact information for all co-presenters, as you want them listed in the program
- A title (10-word maximum)
- A brief (300-word maximum) abstract which addresses all of the following questions:
- Research Question: What were you trying to find out or better understand?
- Context: What are relevant characteristics of your setting – course, type of students, etc.?
- Methods: What did you do to assess the impact of your project on student learning?
- Results: What did you learn by approaching your teaching in this way?
- 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.
