Call For Presenters: The 2nd Annual Excellence In Teaching And Learning Summit

CETL and the Teaching and Learning Council are accepting proposals for session presentations for the February 16, 2023 Excellence in Teaching and Learning Summit, an event that provides opportunities for all TCNJ faculty members to explore and share pedagogical strategies being implemented by colleagues across the campus community. No day classes are scheduled as we gather together on campus and learn from each other. We invite you to submit a proposal to serve as a presenter or workshop facilitator.

What you’ll need for your proposal:

Select a type from the options described below (research, showcase, hands-on, roundtable)

  • Session Title 
  • Brief description of your session (100 words maximum)
  • Justification (500 words maximum—why will this topic be useful to the TCNJ community of teacher-scholars?)
  • References (if applicable)

Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) Research Sessions

Research sessions are scheduled in a 60-minute presentation block, with each presenter(s) allotted 20 minutes to share a SoTL project that is recently completed or in process. Proposals should describe the research question, methodology, results, and conclusions.

Showcase Sessions

Showcase Sessions are scheduled in a 60-minute presentation block, with each presenter showcasing a pedagogical practice and offer guidance to participants on best practices for implementation.

Hands-on Sessions

Practice sessions are 60-minute hands-on workshops with a high level of interaction between participants and presenter(s). Proposals should describe how the audience will be engaged during the session.

Roundtable Sessions

Roundtable sessions allow for facilitator-led conversations around a question related to teaching and learning topics that are of interest to the campus community. Facilitators should prepare to lead a 30-minute session that includes a thought-provoking, open-ended question to get at and discuss the issues surrounding these topics. Participants will rotate tables every 30 minutes.

Please submit your proposal online by December 1, 2022.
