From Here to the Horizon

Date posted: 17/12/2010

The Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (STLHE) invites proposals for presentations at its 31st Annual International Conference in Saskatoon, SK, Canada being held from 15 - 18 June 2011.

The main theme of this conference is to explore how the horizons of our understandings of diversity are actually changing as we investigate the future of teaching and learning in higher education. What are we doing to honour our appreciation of multiple perspectives, and what is happening at the intersections of teaching and learning theory and practice? How have teaching and learning become richer through diversity?
On the horizon of teaching and learning in higher education, one sees tremendous opportunity. Depending on the direction you face, that horizon includes experiential learning, teaching with technology, innovative program and course design, creative assessment and teaching practices, the scholarship of teaching and learning, and, of particular interest, creating an inclusive educational environment that embraces diversity.
Conference attendees are encouraged to submit proposals that focus on insightful and innovative policies, programs, and practices that recognize, benefit from, value, and honour the diversity of students, faculty, instructors, staff and administrators.
The Conference theme will support the many points of view of stakeholders in higher education including (but not exclusively):

  • Diversity and Inclusive Practice in Higher Education (primary theme)
  • Creative Practices: Teaching, Assessment, and Evaluation
  • Experiential Learning and the Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning
  • Institutional Leadership of Teaching and Learning
  • Program Level Outcomes and Quality
  • Innovation with Technology
  • Scholarly Teaching and the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning
  • Transformational Curricular Design
  • Communities of Practice, Learning Communities

Individuals are invited to provide presentations, debates, workshops, round table discussions, and posters that stimulate discussion about the horizons of teaching and learning in higher education.
They are looking for proposals for pre-conference workshops, concurrent sessions, roundtables, or a poster session.  While collaborative efforts are encouraged, in order to ensure maximum participation, they can only accept a maximum of two proposals with the same lead author.
They encourage submissions in both official languages.   Individual or group presentations are welcome.
All proposals should be submitted by 17 January 2011.
