Call for Proposals
Session Description: Poster sessions allow for the discussion of scholarly research and/or practice addressing higher education pedagogy with conference participants in an informal scholarly environment. Each of the two poster sessions will be 90-minutes in length and include approximately 60-80 posters. Each poster will be assigned to one of the two poster sessions.
Submission Format: Poster session proposals are limited to an abstract only with the following information:
- Author(s) name, Institution
- Abstract (max of 1850 characters, approximately 250-300 words) that briefly address the following topics:
- Literature Review
- Description of pedagogical practice (Practice)
- Methodology, Analysis, and Results (Research)
Selection Criteria: Poster session proposals will be evaluated based on the following criteria:
- Is the title accurate, broadly descriptive, and inviting (e.g. Evaluating Learning through Concept Maps rather than the more exclusionary Using Concept Maps in Freshman Biology at a Rural Summer Institute)? Do not use instititution names (e.g., at Southwestern University) or academic domains (e.g., in Freshman Chemistry) in your title.
- Is the work grounded in a larger body of theory or research?
- Is the description of the practice or research approach clear?
- Is the practice or approach generalized to other fields and disciplines?
- Is the abstract well written? Does it follow APA format (for citations and references)?
- Posters are to be a maximum of 42 inches wide x 42 inches tall.
- For full information on the requirements and format of the poster session, see the Poster Session Details and Guidelines.
- A PowerPoint template is available to help you get started preparing your poster. See also two downloadable PowerPoint exemplars from previous conferences:
- An Interdisciplinary/Collaborative Approach to Qualitative Research

- Doctoral Students as Co-Teachers in Graduate Courses
