Call for Proposals: 2022 Conference on General Education, Pedagogy, and Assessment – Sep 20

Posted by American Association of Colleges and Universities on August 24, 2021

We are currently planning to hold the General Education, Pedagogy, and Assessment Conference: From Reflection to Reimagination: Making Excellence the “New Normal” in San Diego, CA, February 10-12, 2022. However, should the current public health emergency persist, we will be prepared to pivot to a hybrid or virtual conference that will accommodate the sessions planned for the in-person meeting.

Overview of the 2022 Conference

As educators, citizens, and human beings, we have been challenged as never before—challenged by the trauma of a global pandemic, by the violence inflicted by people in positions of power and trust, and by the assault on the very foundation of our democracy. Those challenges have manifested in large and small ways in our lives, the lives of our loved ones, and the lives of our students. It will likely take years to fully assess and understand the effects. The work performed by faculty and other higher education professionals in classrooms, through assessment offices and centers for teaching and learning, and across the cocurriculum is the strongest argument against the tired tropes about higher education—that colleges and universities cannot pivot to meet the critical immediate and emerging needs of our students; that faculty cannot or will not innovate in the classroom; that curricular change is impossible; that a liberal education is, at best, a “luxury good.” That is not our shared narrative. It never was. Indeed, it is a false narrative that, moving forward, we must actively contest. Learn more.

AAC&U invites proposals for the 2022 conference. The deadline to submit a proposal is Monday, September 20, 2021 .

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 in a wide range of institutional types, including community colleges, research-extensive institutions, and minority-serving institutions.
