Call for Proposals: July 2017-December 31, 2017
The 10th International Conference on Supplemental Instruction will provide an opportunity for U.S. and international administrators, faculty, staff, and students to meet and present on SI, research and knowledge gained on the subject, and related topics. The Proposal Selection Committee for the 2018 International Conference on SI invites presentations that share expertise and insights into the important and complex undertaking of providing student academic support through Supplemental Instruction. We welcome proposals from faculty, SI supervisors, SI leaders, researchers, administrators, and other professional educators.
Session proposals are invited for Concurrent Sessions, Research Paper Presentations, and Poster Sessions on topics addressing peer collaborative learning. Special preference will be given to Certified SI Programs; to panel proposals (three or more presenters); and to proposals that address the conference theme of Sustaining Safe Harbors: Community, IncluSIvity, and Accessibility.
- Concurrent Sessions – 50 minutes
- Research Paper Presentations – 50 minutes
- Poster Sessions – 60 minutes
- Submitting a Proposal
All proposals must be sent on or before December 31, 2017. Since the conference program must be finalized and presenters notified in time for preconference coordination, late proposals will not be accepted. If you have questions regarding the guidelines for proposals, please e-mail Shaunte Montgomery or call (816) 235-1178.
Notifications will be emailed on a rolling basis until February 15th.
*** If your institution requires you to know your proposal acceptance status prior to these dates, please advise us of this information when you submit your proposal, and we will happily work with you to expedite this process.
Unfortunately, because of budgetary restrictions, it is not possible to offer an honorarium or to waive registration fees for program presenters. Presenters not registered by the presenter registration deadline (April 20, 2018) will have their presentation removed from the conference program.
When two or more people are presenting, the contact presenter is responsible for notifying all co-presenters of the status of the proposal. No session selected for the conference should have its content significantly changed once accepted. Presenters are responsible for providing session handouts.
The Proposal Selection Committee will consider balance in the range of topics, level of expertise, interests covered, and professional and geographic distribution of the program presenters when accepting proposals.
When submitting your proposals, please be prepared to include the following information:
