Call for Proposals

2011 Forum

The Mount Royal University Institute for Scholarship of Teaching and Learning is pleased to announce the 2011 Centennial Symposium on Scholarship of Teaching and Learning call for proposals. This event will take place November 10-12, 2011 in Banff, Alberta Canada. It 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 – a “going public” session designed to share results of completed investigations, the goal is to expand the impact of compelling research results on other practitioners;
  • Early returns and initial findings of work in progress – 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 – a venue for sharing research questions in the hope of building connections with like-minded individuals, the goal is to expand scholarly capacity and the likelihood of more significant results;
  • Innovative approaches to data gathering and analysis – an “in progress” or a “going public” session focused on method and/or methodology, the goal is to provide insight and exposure for other practitioners;
  • Meta-level studies and contributions to future scholarship – a way for scholars to share questions, data, or circumstances that are beyond the scope of single-course-based research but could contribute to future scholarship of teaching and learning, the goal is a wider view of data use and collaboration;
  • Institutional/Program support and development – an opportunity for representatives from centres, institutes, programs, societies, and other collective structures to share work that fosters and supports teaching and learning scholarship, the goal is to expand our community and share innovations, insights, or information.
2011 Forum

Proposals will be accepted from students, faculty, staff, administrators, or anyone else committed to systematic scholarly inquiry. All proposals require a title, abstract, and bibliography.
