THURSDAY, AUGUST 18TH
Call for proposals is now open.
The 19th Annual SHSU Teaching and Learning Conference will be held Thursday, August 18th, just before the fall semester begins. This is an open call for proposals for any instructor to present one of the concurrent sessions at the TLC22. These twenty- or fifty-minute interactive sessions typically have 30-50 participants. Sessions are a chance for you to share innovative and practical teaching ideas, experiences, and approaches with fellow instructors at SHSU and other instructors from the region. The conference is university-wide, so topics are welcome from all academic disciplines. This year the keynote speaker will be Todd Zakrajsek. You might recognize him as the keynote speaker for TLC16. This year we asked Todd to focus on the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, especially how to get started, how to write SOTL articles for submission, and which journals are options for publication. Proposals must be completed using the attached form and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by a deadline of April 1st, 2022, with preference given to earlier submissions.
