Conference Formats

45-Minute Interactive Session

These interactive sessions can constitute either an individual presenter or a panel (the proposer puts the panel together) of presenters.

The session content should focus on one conference thread and include an area of transformative learning investigation, application, strategy, or experience. Content should also include evidence-based research or practice with measures of student learning. The presenter should utilize interactive strategy and learning outcomes or attendee takeaways.

Poster Session

The poster sessions will be divided among a) undergraduate students only, b) undergraduate student co-collaborated with faculty or graduate students,  and c) faculty or graduate student.

Poster sessions are designed to provide opportunities for participants to share research, practice, or innovation with transformative learning. This is an ideal framework for emerging work where collaborative feedback is desired.  At least one author needs to be present during the designated poster session time. Included in the proposal should be a statement on how the poster relates to one the conference threads.

The maximum poster size is 42 inches x 42 inches. 

The poster should be printed for attaching to a poster stand. Supplies for attaching the posters will be available.   

First, second, and third place will be awarded in the Undergraduate Student category.

Session Handouts

If you believe you have information (e.g., a summary or other material) that participants would value please bring 10-15 handouts.
