The Teaching Professor Conference Issues Call for Papers for 2011

Magna Publications, the leading provider of professional development resources for the higher education community, today issued a Call for Proposals for the 2011 Teaching Professor Conference to be held May 20-22 in Atlanta.

Now in its eighth year, The Teaching Professor Conference provides a thought-provoking and stimulating forum for educators of all disciplines and experience levels to share best practices that advance college teaching and learning.

This year’s Call for Proposals seeks submissions for presentations, panel discussions, and poster sessions focusing on the theme of “Educate. Engage. Inspire.” Submissions should relate to one of the following tracks, however compelling ideas that fall outside of these topical areas are welcome:

  • Learning
  • Activities that engage students
  • Teaching specific types of courses
  • Instructional vitality: Ways to keep teaching fresh and invigorated
  • Teaching and learning with technology
  • Grading and feedback

To submit a proposal, please visit The Teaching Professor Conference website and fill out the online proposal form: Information on the proposal process, including what the review panel looks for in a quality submission, is also available at the above link.

The deadline for submissions is Oct. 22, 2010.

“Each year The Teaching Professor Conference delivers a full slate of programs and presenters guaranteed to restore your enthusiasm and renew your personal commitment to teaching,” said MaryAnn Mlekush, conference manager. “We welcome proposals from new and returning presenters who lead sessions that engage attendees and offer practical strategies that can be implemented in their classrooms.”
