Conference on Innovative Pedagogy in Higher Education

Call for Proposals

Due September 7 with Proposal Decisions by September 15

PASSIONATE ABOUT PEDAGOGY,
PURPOSEFUL ABOUT PRACTICE

The goal of ISETL is to explore, share, and promote innovative pedagogical approaches. The Conference on Innovative Pedagogy in Higher Education is an opportunity to learn from each other. We seek proposals that bring something new to the classroom — a new strategy, a new learning approach, a new classroom (or virtual classroom) technology application, a new student support mechanism,  or a new method for assessing. Innovation comes in all sizes, from smaller strategies to assess student learning, to larger approaches for fostering student engagement. ISETL is looking for both.

What’s working for you in your classroom? What’s working across institutions? What remote teaching techniques are you pioneering?

In addition to a focus on innovative pedagogy, the ISETL conference emphasizes interactive conference sessions. ISETL sessions immerse participants in new ways of thinking, teaching, writing, assessing, designing, supporting, and developing.

VIRTUAL CONFERENCE

ISETL’s FIRST 50 YEARS

The ISETL organization was founded in 1970 with the inaugural International Audio-Tutorial Congress. Through several name changes and a couple of organizational mergers, ISETL’s mission has focused on interactive and innovative pedagogical approaches. The ISETL conference, Conference on Innovative Pedagogy in Higher Education, has sponsored thousands of presentations, demonstrations, and discussions addressing effective college and university teaching and learning. In 2005, ISETL added a journal to its support for higher education pedagogy, the International Journal of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (IJTLHE). IJTLHE has developed a large international readership with authors from over 100 countries, and article downloads exceeding 1 million. ISETL continues its 51-year history of fostering interactive and innovative higher education pedagogy through its conference and journal, and is developing new approaches though its certificate and public scholarship projects.
