The Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) is pleased to announce the Network for Academic Renewal General Education, Pedagogy, and Assessment Conference call for proposals.

Call for Proposals: https://www.aacu.org/conferences/gened/2020/cfp

Meeting Details: https://www.aacu.org/conferences/gened/2020

Colleagues from all areas of the higher education landscape are invited to share their efforts to create intentional and integrated general education programs, to assess current practices, and to generate evidence of high-quality learning for all students.

AAC&U strongly encourages proposals that balance conceptual and theoretical frameworks with concrete, pragmatic examples; that highlight the how and the why of a practice, strategy, or cutting-edge model for achieving integrated and intentional designs for general education; and that showcase evidence of quality learning through general education programs. Proposals should address how the work can be adapted at institutions of various types, including community colleges, research-intensive institutions, and minority-serving institutions.

The conference themes below reflect the Principles of General Education Maps and Markers (GEMs) developed as part of a nationwide study of foundational purposes of general education programs that advance student learning and preparation.

  • Proficiency
  • Agency and Self-Direction
  • Engaged Pedagogy, Integrative Learning, and Problem-Based Inquiry
  • Equity
  • Intentionality, Transparency, and Assessment

Please review the conference overview and full call for proposals for detailed instructions. For more information, call (202) 387-3760 or write to network@aacu.org.
