Spring Conference on Teaching session proposals due Friday

By Staff

The President's Teaching Scholars invite proposals from CU faculty for sessions on teaching and learning in the classroom addressing the conference theme, "Critical, Creative and Interactive Student Learning and Faculty Teaching."

The conference will be Friday, March 4, 2011, at the Anschutz Campus, from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. CU faculty will be welcome to register for one of 100 seats (details to be announced soon).

Sessions can be proposed for one hour.

Workshop-style sessions that emphasize active participation by attendees, rather than passive listening, will be strongly favored by the organizing committee.

The conference organizers take a broad view of the conference theme. Aspects of the theme will include individual classroom examples of: inclusion of specific social and cultural issues from the learning and course environment; the development of learning and problem solving; individual differences in learning, on-line course learning, classroom research (Scholarship of Teaching and Learning) on a particular aspect of learning in one's course, how to deal with differential student openness and closure to learning, to name a few. (Proposals regarding programs and their development will not fit the focus.)

To propose a session, please submit the following information by email to, by Friday Jan 21, 2011. Submissions will be selected by the organizers based on relationship to the theme, judged audience interest, and balance with other sessions.
