2014 New England Conference for Student Success
“Teaching for Student Success”
Call for Proposals
The University of Massachusetts Amherst will host the fifth annual New England Conference for Student Success on Friday, September 19, 2014. The program committee invites instructors, student affairs staff, practitioners and scholars to submit proposals for conference sessions. All submissions should emphasize promising practices or programs aimed at fostering student success.
This year’s theme, “Teaching for Student Success,” focuses on best practices in teaching and learning. All presentations should be aimed at demonstrating a practice that facilitates learning, regardless of the amount or kind of technology it uses. Applicants are encouraged to submit proposals that highlight a developing practice or a “tried and true” approach to teaching and learning that they are utilizing in their work. Priority will be given to proposals that demonstrate cooperative efforts between course instruction and supplemental services. Below are examples of the kinds of topics that are of particular interest to the conference.
