Feb 04, 2020 Feb 18, 2020

Conference dates and location 22-25 July, 2020

Otterbein University

Westerville, Ohio (near Columbus)


Interactive workshops related to teaching and learning philosophy at any educational level are welcome. We encourage creative approaches to individual or panel workshops on:

Innovative and successful teaching strategies, course/ assignment design     
How work in other disciplines can improve the teaching of philosophy     
Innovative uses of instructional technologies     
Teaching in non-traditional settings      
Methods to improve student learning       
Professional issues connected to teaching      
Diversity and Inclusion in our classrooms and discipline     
Special Topic - High Impact Practices: experiential learning, service-learning, community engagement, undergraduate research, and more.          


Proposals should include:

Session title      
Length of the proposed session: 20-30 minute session, 60-minute session, 90-minute session (please include a justification if requesting 90-minutes).     
    100-200 word abstract suitable for the conference program.     

    Based on participant feedback, we are reducing the number of 90-minute workshops available and adding more 20-30 minute “flash” sessions which would be the perfect        
    place for mini-workshops, assignment/curricula exhibitions or design activities, hosted table-discussions and other similar sessions.      
    This meets dual goals of keeping a wide variety of people participating while also allowing more unscheduled time for informal interactions between participants.     
    1-3 page description of session goals and interactive design, planned handouts, etc.      
    A list of relevant sources         

To facilitate anonymous review, no identifying information should appear in the proposal. Please include contact information for each presenter, including institutional affiliations,
in the email or on a separate cover sheet.
