Thank you for your interest in submitting a proposal for the 2020 Teaching and Research Innovation Showcase. Proposals should be submitted no later than March 31st and will be evaluated by a joint committee from across the campus.

We have three formats you can submit a proposal for:

  • 15 Minute Table Talk
    • A 15 minute table discussion on a topic that you’d like to share relating to an innovative teaching or research practice. Presenters will stay at their own tables and participants will rotate in 15 minute intervals between presenters in a large space.
  • 50 Minute Workshop
    • A 50 minute workshop sharing a practice, technique, or outcome with a small group of participants. This type of workshop should be more hands-on and in-depth for participants that the 15 Minute Table Talk. These workshops can take place in flexible rooms or a computer lab.
  • Information Fair
    • A poster fair format but without the paper-based posters. Presenters will stay at a station in a large space with participants moving through the space. Presenters will be provided with display technology (TV screens / projectors) to visually share a topic of their choosing relating to innovative teaching or research practices.
