Call for Proposals. 2019 University of Calgary Conference on Postsecondary Learning and Teaching
December 13, 2018

Exploring Experiential Learning
How do we transform education to spark curiosity, drive innovation and prepare students to thrive in their chosen careers? What does learning look like in a postsecondary institution that emphasizes entrepreneurial, creative and critical thinking? How do we design teaching and scholarship that are informed by and contribute to our local, national and international communities? Increasingly, experiential learning is prioritized in higher education. Students demand relevant and meaningful learning experiences and employers expect them to be equipped with the skills required by a changing workforce.

Under the umbrella of experiential learning, students are encouraged to participate in field experiences, cooperative education or internships, alternative break programs and applied research projects, among other opportunities. While different in their delivery, programs under this broad umbrella treat learning as a process whereby students engage with new challenges and reflect on them, leading to deep learning and meaningful growth.

The Taylor Institute for Teaching and Learning invites all members of the academic community – students, faculty, staff and postdoctoral scholars to explore experiential learning — and the scholarship, approaches, practices and issues that surround it — in the postsecondary context.

April 30 to May 1, 2019
University of Calgary, Calgary Alberta, CANADA
