The Mount Royal University Institute for Scholarship of Teaching and Learning is pleased to announce a call for proposals to and participation in our first annual Centennial Symposium on Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, November 11 to 13 2010 in Banff Alberta Canada. This event is a “practitioners conference” dedicated to developing teaching and learning research, sharing nascent findings, going public with results of completed projects, and building an extended scholarly community. Proposals will be accepted for sixty-minute presentations in these categories:
- Completed teaching and learning research projects - this will be a “going public” session designed to share results of completed investigations - the goal is to expand the impact on other practitioners of compelling research results.
- Innovative approaches to data gathering and analysis - this can be an “in progress” or a “going public” session focused on method and methodology - the goal is to provide insight and exposure for other interested practitioners.
- Early returns and initial findings of work in progress - this session provides an opportunity for researchers who have completed data gathering but are still in the process of analysis to receive constructive and critical feedback - the goal is to provide initial review and thoughtful support for ongoing research.
- Calls for collaboration, triangulation, and development - this session provides scholars with a venue for sharing research questions in the hope of building connections with like-minded individuals - the goal is to expand research capacity and the likelihood of more significant results.
- Institutional/Program scholarship support and development - this session will offer representatives from centres, institutes, programs, societies, and other collective structures the opportunity to share work that fosters and supports teaching and learning scholarship - the goal is to expand our community of scholars and share innovations, insights, and information.
Proposals from students, faculty, staff, administrators, those outside academe, or others committed to systematic scholarly inquiry require a title, an abstract, and a bibliography.
Presentations will feature individual scholars, teams of scholars, panels of scholars, and program or institutional representatives.
Proposals are no longer being accepted for the 2010 Centennial Symposium.
