Individual presentations will be 45 minutes (with approximately 30-35 minutes for the presentation and 10-15 minutes for questions) and focus on research and practice topics within the general category of academic integrity.

Workshops will be 90 minutes.  A workshop differs from an individual presentation in that it is primarily dedicated to active learning and collaboration between audience members and the presenters, and among audience members.  Workshops may be presented by one or more presenters.

Panels will be 45 minutes (with approximately 30-35 minutes for the presentation and 10-15 minutes for questions) and include presentations from at least 2 different presenters, preferably from multiple institutions or roles.  Time should be devoted to individual presentations and discussion between the presenters.


Posters provide a written or graphic overview of research or programs, and typically include a brief abstract and graphics (tables, figures, or pictures). Poster presenters will be provided with an easel to accommodate one 32 by 40 inch poster board. Presenters must be available for questions during the poster session. Presenters must bring their own materials to tack or tape their poster to the poster board.

Please note that you are encouraged to submit multiple program proposals; however, you will only be allowed to be lead presenter/author on one session.  The program committee will communicate with you if they accept multiple proposals in which you are lead author to determine which to accept.

Audio/Visual:

All presentation spaces will have a projector with audio, VGA and HDMI cables.  Presenters are expected to provide laptops or tablets for their presentations.

    2018 University of Calgary Conference on Postsecondary Learning and Teaching

    Students as Creators, Drivers, Innovators and Collaborators

    "The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them. – Albert Einstein"

    Who do we send into the world? A world that faces significant challenges and presents endless opportunities. As teachers, we now recognize that we need to nurture kind, informed and courageous individuals — innovators, creators, collaborators, producers, scholars, designers, builders — capable of understanding multiple perspectives and solving problems in order to drive positive, enduring change.

    Acknowledgement of this need has triggered a transformative shift in postsecondary education from “teaching” to “learning” in the last 25 years. Formerly viewed as institutions to provide instruction to consumers of information, universities are increasingly seen as places to “produce learning” — where the very purpose of education is to elicit student discovery and construction of knowledge, where success is measured in terms of the quality of student learning and of the students themselves. In other words, an approach to learning that has the student at its core.

    Building on a body of scholarly work and initiatives from Healey and Harrington (2016), Marquis et al. (2016), Cook-Sather (2014), Barr and Tagg (1995), the Students as Producers Initiative from the University of Lincoln, Vanderbilt University, and others, the 2018 University of Calgary Conference on Postsecondary Learning and Teaching “Students as Creators, Drivers, Innovators and Collaborators ” invites you to explore student-directed learning — and the scholarship, approaches, practices and issues that surround it — in the postsecondary context.

    Overall Conference Goal

    To provide an opportunity for academic staff, students, staff and post-doctoral scholars to share, critically examine and build on our collective knowledge related to the scholarship and practice of teaching and learning.

    2018 Keynote Speakers

    Keynote Day 1 | May 1, 2018:
    Isabelle Barrett-Ng - Senior Instructor & University of Calgary Teaching Scholar, and Students from the SAGES (SoTL (Scholarship of Teaching and Learning) Advancing Graduate Education in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics)) Program, University of Calgary

    Keynote Day 2 | May 2, 2018:
    Beth Marquis - Assistant Professor & Associate Director (Research) at the Paul R. McPherson Institute for Leadership, Innovation and Excellence in Teaching, McMaster University

    The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them. – Albert Einstein

    Who do we send into the world? A world that faces significant challenges and presents endless opportunities. As teachers, we now recognize that we need to nurture kind, informed and courageous individuals — innovators, creators, collaborators, producers, scholars, designers, builders — capable of understanding multiple perspectives and solving problems in order to drive positive, enduring change.[n1]

    Acknowledgement of this need has triggered a transformative shift in postsecondary education from “teaching” to “learning” in the last 25 [n2] years. Formerly viewed as institutions to provide instruction to consumers of information, universities are increasingly seen as places to “produce learning” — where the very purpose of education is to elicit student discovery and construction of knowledge, where success is measured in terms of the quality of student learning and of the students themselves. In other words, an approach to learning that has the student at its core[n3] .

    Building on a body of scholarly work and initiatives from Healey and Harrington (2016), Marquis et al. (2016[NK4] [js5] ), Cook-Sather (2014), Barr and Tagg (1995), the Students as Producers Initiative from the University of Lincoln, Vanderbilt University, and others, the 2018 University of Calgary Conference on Postsecondary Learning and Teaching “Students as Creators, Drivers, Innovators and Collaborators [n6] [NK7] ” invites you to explore student-directed learning — and the scholarship, approaches, practices and issues that surround it — in the postsecondary context.


    [n1]I really like this.  Every word.

    [n2]Barr & Tagg’s “From Teaching to Learning” was 1995, so I’d say 25 years, just to be safe.

    [n3]This paragraph is beautiful.

    [NK4]I thought it may be strategic to include Beth’s research here! And Alison Cook-Sather’s work is probably the most commonly cited.

    [js5]Good!

    [n6]I like this one.  I like #1 best, but the blurb isn’t really about partnership, so this one makes more sense, is inclusive, and has GREAT words.

    [NK7]I agree that Option 3 best captures

    May 2, 2017 – May 3, 2017

    Creating a Learning Culture:  Conversations that Matter

    Conversations are the foundation of human relationships. A meaningful conversation – or a conversation that matters – can transcend culture and inspire us to explore, discuss and share. It is also the heart of teaching and learning. Palmer (2007) provides us guidelines to consider intentional conversations with colleagues to create a shared understanding of a teaching community. Likewise, Roxa & Mårtensson (2009) and Roxa, Mårtensson & Alveteg (2011) introduce us to the world of private, intellectual, and trustful conversations among a network of colleagues that can create and change learning culture.  A model to include student voices in the teaching and learning conversation is explored by Werder, Ware, Thomas & Skogsbert (2010). What conversations do you have about teaching and learning? About creating a learning culture?

    We will discover together how these conversations create opportunities for teaching development and better understanding of student learning at the 2017 University of Calgary Conference on Postsecondary Learning and Teaching, Creating a Learning Culture: Conversations that Matter. After the conference, it is our hope that delegates will continue the conversation to influence the collaboration, change and culture around learning and teaching.

    Overall Conference Goal:

    To provide an opportunity for academic staff, students, staff and post-doctoral scholars to share, critically examine and build on our collective knowledge of learning and teaching.

    2017 Keynote Speakers:

    Opening Plenary
    Dawn Johnson, Jennifer Lock, Leslie Reid, Associate Deans Teaching and Learning, University of Calgary
