The ISETL 51th Annual Conference on
Innovative Higher Education Pedagogy

Tempe Mission, Palms • Tempe, Arizona
October 8-10, 2020

The ISETL 51th Annual Conference on Innovative Higher Education Pedagogy will be held in Tempe, Arizona from October 8-10, 2020. ISETL encourages college and university faculty and practitioners from all disciplines to develop, study, and apply learner-centered principles of teaching, learning, and assessment in innovative, yet effective and practical ways. The program committee invites proposals for 50 minute presentations in the following forums: Interactive Teaching Sessions, Academic Research Sessions, and Roundtable Discussions. Additionally, poster session proposals are also accepted. We are especially interested in presentations that demonstrate practical and creative teaching and learning techniques that are grounded in literature and based on relevant best practices and/or research that will appeal to colleagues in several disciplines. We will also consider presentations on other topics relevant to the mission of ISETL. Preference will be given to presentations that promise to model alternative teaching methods and engage their audiences in activity and dialogue.

ISETL is a supportive and inclusive organization of professionals dedicated to the practice and scholarship of teaching in higher education. The rich representation of disciplines from traditional liberal arts and sciences, engineering and the applied sciences, and a diverse set of professional schools gives us all new insights to achieving common goals of improving teaching and learning. ISETL conferences provide a professional forum for those who have something to share, and the informal and interactive nature of the presentations makes learners and teachers of us all. ISETL’s listserv provides an online forum for exchanging ideas and innovations in pedagogy, and ISETL’s publication, the International Journal of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, a peer-reviewed journal, provides faculty with an outlet for sharing their academic endeavors.
