Call for Proposals

What we call college and university teaching exists in myriad multidimensional forms throughout the world, but we all strive to educate students with the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values necessary to be productive members of their respective societies. The internationalization of higher education, however, has created universities where national boundaries are irrelevant and where the movements of students, teachers, ideas and instructional methods cross physical, cultural and pedagogical barriers. Our Symposium hopes to address the impacts of internationalization on teaching and learning and will offer a series of plenaries, panel presentations, concurrent sessions, roundtable discussions, social activities and pre-conference workshops to provide participants opportunities to share, learn and network with other teachers, scholars and academic leaders from around the world.

Accepting Proposals For:
  • Pre-conference workshops (three hours per workshop)
  • Conference sessions (50 minutes per session; single presenters or panels)
  • Essays to be published in our conversation starter

Desired Topics Include:
  • International collaborations in learning and teaching
  • Students and faculty colleagues as learners
  • Discipline-specific differences in learning and teaching
  • International comparisons in discipline differences, assessment and accreditation
  • Global innovations in teaching and paradigm shifts from different corners of the world
  • The multicultural and multilingual classroom – physical or virtual
  • Creative use of technology in the classroom for learning and outcomes assessment
