Submit an abstract for a Poster and/or TEL Demo:

  1. Lightning Talk Teaching Showcase

    • Do you have a cool classroom activity, assignment or teaching method that someone might be able to adapt for their context?

    • Share what you’re doing in the classroom in a brief, 5-minute lightning talk

    • Presenters will have a table and can share resources (sample materials, poster, etc.) to accompany lightning talk

  2. Teaching As Research (TAR) Poster

    • Share qualitative and/or quantitative data on student learning outcomes. Data required.

    • Poster template provided

  3. Show and TEL: Technology-Enhanced Learning Demos

    • Like a poster session, but presenters bring their laptop, rather than a poster, and informally demo TEL as participants mingle.

    • If showcasing student work, can either present it anonymized or invite 1-2 students to share their own work.
