Call for Proposals

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 concurrent sessions.  Session types include interactive teaching sessions, research presentation sessions, roundtable discussion sessions, as well as poster sessions. We are especially interested in presentations that engage participants in active learning strategies, are connected to/build on published literature, and are of interest to a wide variety of disciplines.


Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Innovations with technology and online education
  • Inclusive and culturally responsive approaches
  • Research and evidence-based strategies


Submission should conform to proposal guidelines, with specific attention to:

  • Clearly stated outcomes
  • Cross-disciplinary focus
  • Based on solid foundation of literature and/or data
