AAC&U General Education and Assessment (Call for Proposals)

General Education and Assessment: From My Work to Our Work

A Network for Academic Renewal Conference
February 18-20, 2016
New Orleans, Louisiana
Proposals Due Monday, July 27, 2015

The Association of American Colleges and Universities is pleased to announce the Call for Proposals for AAC&U’s 2016 Conference on General Education and Assessment: From My Work to Our Work.

In order to develop high-quality general education pathways that are effective for all students—especially for students from traditionally underserved groups—we need to build, enrich, and support greater collaboration among educators of all sorts. “From My Work to Our Work” is designed to examine research, evidence, and models for effective general education programs and courses that work for all students.  With focused attention on equity, the meeting will examine effective general education teaching and learning methods, campus cultures that value and support general education, integrative general education frameworks, and transparent approaches to assessment.

We invite proposals that are poised for adaptation in a wide range of institution types, including community colleges and minority-serving institutions, and that showcase evidence-based practices reflecting the following themes:

  • Assessment and Transparency
  • Equity, Empowerment, and Agency
  • Pedagogies and Practices
  • Integrative Conceptual Frameworks

Join us at this year’s meeting to explore how general education and more effective forms of assessment can help us truly make excellence inclusive and empower all our students for future success and well-being.
