Call for Proposals

With the goals of Curriculum Alignment, College Access, and Transfer Student Success in mind, the theme of this year’s conference – Bridging Curriculum and Transfer Readiness – takes advantage of classroom and coaching/advising expertise to ensure students are prepared for and successful after transferring. The conference will feature four concurrent presentation tracks, which are:

Track 1: Initiatives for Seamless Academic Transition

Sessions in this track will focus on efforts, campaigns, initiatives or activities that increase a student’s opportunities for successful transition. Presentations can focus on those activities that result in increased retention, student course momentum, improved graduation or time-to-degree, aligned curriculum or pathways, completed pre-requisite requirements, improved social/academic integration.

Track 2: Data Informed Transfer Success Strategies

Sessions in this track will focus on examples or best practices of how to use data to address transfer shock, inform curricular or pedagogical practices, or demonstrate how data inform and impact student success.

Track 3: Artificial Intelligence and Student Success

Sessions in this track include topics that discuss the rise and impact of artificial intelligence in higher education and information about how to embrace the new technology we know is everywhere. Presentations can discuss effective, safe and ethical use of AI, best practices and lessons learned using AI, or information literacy with AI.

Track 4: Advising, Coaching, and Pathways

Sessions in this track focus more on the impact of effective advising and coaching strategies. Presentations may include effective use of advising pathways, co-curricular supports, best practices and innovative approaches to advising and coaching.

Presentations will be given live and in a format of the presenter’s choosing during a 45-minute session.
