Call for Sessions

The conference planning committee invites and encourages your participation in this year’s Institute. The committee seeks sessions that demonstrate innovative, interdisciplinary and unconventional efforts that faculty, staff, and students can engage in to advance teaching and learning. Pedagogies where students are active learners are encouraged. The committee actively seeks successful strategies that have improved the academic discourse and student outcomes. Finally, if you developed online or blended materials/courses/programs, a learning community, or other interdisciplinary collaborative programs within or across Pace’s schools and colleges, we hope you will share your expertise.

Guidelines for Submission

  1. Please submit a title and a 150-word abstract of your session. Please limit the time of your session to 45 minutes.
  2. Please indicate in bullet form how you intend to engage the audience. Some ideas include: discussion, questions, games and simulations; participant adaptation and development of classroom activities similar to yours; break-out groups for activities or discussion; and incorporating multimedia.
