Presenter Guidelines

Concurrent Sessions

Sessions will focus on the practice and experience of engaged learning and teaching, in addition to the mutual benefits that result when academic scholars and institutions thoughtfully engage with local, regional/state, national and global communities.

Engaged learning may take the form of:

  • undergraduate research
  • service-learning
  • project- or problem-based learning
  • innovative practices
  • practical ways that community engagement, reciprocity and mutual benefits are obtained through strategic partnerships that result in positive economic or social benefits.

Proposals that include any combination of these practices are also encouraged.

Posters

Posters can focus on engaged research, scholarship, creativity and artistry, in addition to engaged learning, teaching and community partnerships. Community engaged research, scholarship, creativity or artistry addresses complex issues and generates knew knowledge or understanding.

  • Posters should be no larger than 32” x 40”. The poster will hang by pushpins on a show wall. 
  • No foam boards will be allowed
  • Presenters should be prepared to stand next to their poster for the entire duration of their scheduled presentation time and should prepare a three-five minute overview of their project.
  • The poster will be displayed for the entire event
