The Teaching Professor Technology Conference: Call for Proposals

We are now accepting proposals for The Teaching Professor Technology Conference, taking place October 4-6, 2013 in Atlanta, GA.

This is the first year The Teaching Professor is hosting a conference focused specifically on technology, but for those familiar with our annual Teaching Professor Conference, the format will be very similar.

The goal of The Teaching Professor Technology Conference is to provide a thought-provoking and stimulating forum for educators of all disciplines and experience levels to share practical ideas and best practices for using technology to advance teaching and learning in higher education.

We seek interactive sessions that engage and inform attendees.

Submissions should relate to one of the following technology areas; however compelling proposals that fall outside of these designated topics are also welcome:

  • Blended or Flipped Courses
  • Online Learning
  • Technology in Face-to-Face Courses
  • MOOCs
  • Social Media, Mobile Learning and Apps

Learn more about the proposal process, including tips on writing a strong proposal (pdf)»

The conference will feature multiple concurrent sessions that are 30 minutes and 75 minutes in length, including Q&A.

  • Best Practice Presentations (30 minutes) are designed to provide attendees with a highly focused how-to demonstration on a specific best practice or approach for using technology.
  • Active Learning Workshops (75 minutes) provide a more in-depth, solutions-based learning experience.

When you submit your proposal, you must indicate which format you would like to present – a 30-minute Best Practice Presentation or a 75-minute Active Learning Workshop.

Deadline for entry is March 1, 2013 with notifications of acceptance to be sent by May 1, 2013.

Submit your presentation proposal using our online form.

Questions regarding the submission process should be directed to MaryAnn Mlekush, Conference Manager at or 608-227-8138.
