Educational gag orders. ChatGPT. Political Extremism. Alternative Facts. Don’t Say Gay laws. The conditions for teaching and learning have rarely been this fraught.
How are faculty, staff, and students navigating this challenging terrain in the classroom and beyond? How are campus leaders responding to the challenges to academic freedom, the implications of artificial intelligence for faculty and students, and the rise of political extremism on campus? How do we maintain ‘brave spaces’ for teaching and learning in this context? How has teaching and learning changed since the mass shift to online learning during the pandemic? What did we learn?
We invite proposals on topics related to the present and future of teaching and learning. We seek a diversity of perspectives and experiences, and we especially encourage presentations that include teams from academic affairs and student affairs. Proposals are due Wednesday, March 15.
We invite proposals for two types of sessions:
- Topical sessions: 60-minute, in-depth discussions of topics relevant to regional public universities. Designed to present multiple perspectives on a topic and engage the audience in discussion.
- Exemplary practices: 30-minute lightning rounds designed for a single institution to share an effective, innovative practice.
