This year’s Spring Institute theme focuses on the collaborative work happening on our campuses or within our organizations every day.  The conference’s program will showcase best practices, stories of successful collaborations, lessons learned, and solutions to common issues.

Have you coordinated extensively with other departments or other stakeholders to leverage data for driving decisions? Do you have insight and information to share on best practices and lessons learned that can benefit others? Consider submitting a proposal for the upcoming Institute

Submit a Proposal

Proposal submissions are due by April 5 2019

Proposals may be submitted for the following types of sessions:

Speaker Session: This is a presentation or demonstration of a particularly useful tool, test, or evaluation in assessment. The emphasis is on showing the application of a new innovation rather than discussing the issues, literature, and methodology underlying its development. The proposal should describe the audience for whom this is appropriate for, including a participant’s level of knowledge or experience needed. The proposal should also include a description of the innovation, its functionality, and the benefits and costs of implementing it. At the time of submission, the innovation should be fully developed or in the final stage of implementation. Presentations are expected to run about 60 minutes with time allotted for questions and answers.

Hands-on Workshop: This is longer version of the Speaker Session which will allow attendees to learn by doing! The hands-on workshops are expected to run about 2 hours with time allotted for questions and answers.

PowerTalk : A short "TED talk" style presentation. Described by Forbes leadership writer Carmine Gallo as "a fresh, contemporary style of creating and delivering presentations that engages and inspires audiences." Similarly-themed PowerTalk presentations will be grouped together into 60 minute sessions. Topics can vary from strategic planning to learning outcomes assessments; from enrollment forecasting to mandated reporting. Find something that you are passionate about and share it with your colleagues. PowerTalk presentations are expected to run approximately 10 to 15 minutes with time allotted for questions and answers.

Panel Discussion: More interactive than Ted-Talks or Demonstrations, Panel Discussions are brief presentations and/or informed discussions on a topic by up to four people with contrasting or complementary points of view, moderated by a chairperson, with time reserved for audience participation. Submissions for a Panel Discussion should include a Title, Short Description, and Areas of Expertise. Each discussant topic should be listed. Discussions are expected to run about 60 minutes with time allotted for questions and answers.
