Call for Proposals
Educators from across the United States and Canada who can contribute their experience and expertise with active and integrative learning, in its many varieties, and discuss how it is best encouraged and assessed, are invited to submit proposals for presentations and panels focusing upon their efforts to promote learning within individual courses, curricula or programs.
Presentations will occur during concurrent sessions on Monday, Jan. 6, and Tuesday, Jan. 7, 2014. Proposals should include a 150-word description of the proposed session including the title, author(s), and the institution and position of each author. The description should include a statement of how the audience will be engaged. The concurrent presentation times are either 45 or 60 minutes in length. If you have a preference, feel free to include that in your proposal, although your first choice is not guaranteed. There will also be a poster session on Monday, Jan. 6, 2014. Poster proposals should be in the same format as concurrent session proposals and should describe the content of the poster.
Proposals should be submitted electronically via www.tlsociety.net. The deadline for proposals is Friday, Nov. 1, 2013. Notification of acceptance will be given in late November. Please note that all presenters must register for the conference. Accepted presenters have the option of including their paper archived on the NU website.
