Join us at Adelphi University’s 2024 Teaching and Learning Conference, where cutting-edge discussions will center around the pivotal themes of Accessibility and Artificial Intelligence. 

Explore innovative approaches to make education accessible to all while delving into the transformative impact of AI in shaping the future of teaching and learning. Engage with thought leaders, educators, and experts as we collectively envision a more inclusive and technologically advanced educational landscape.

Please be aware that the conference and session times could change based on keynote and external speaker presentation(s) and/or the number of faculty proposals we receive. The FCPE will reach out to you to discuss/confirm your proposal and day/time availability. We thank you, in advance, for your proposal submission!

Call for Proposals: Concurrent Programming

We invite proposals for programming for the two-day conference: May 8 and May 9 via Zoom with breakout sessions, polling, shared documents, and open discussions as possible engagement activities. FCPE is happy to work with presenters to plan and support engagement.

Possible formats: 50-minute workshops, coffee talks (small table or open forums), and panel discussions designed with administrative leaders, faculty, staff, and external partners as panelists. If you would like to offer a format other than what has been discussed here, please let us know.


Please consider submitting a proposal aligned with one of the following themes:

  1. Accessibility
  2. Artificial Intelligence (AI)
  3. Proposals addressing innovative teaching and learning practices on other topics are most welcome

Session Format

We invite proposals from faculty or groups of faculty and partners in the following formats: 

  • Panel Presentations: 50-minutes panel discussions may consist of three to four presenters dealing with related topics/questions. Proposals can either be for one panelist with a 10-minute segment, or a complete panel of 3-4 speakers for 30 minutes. The panel or presentation should address itself to one of the themes noted above, and allow ample time for audience participation.
  • Coffee Talk: the discussion should focus on a question or problem related to teaching or the student experience, and seek to engage the audience in shared experiences, solutions or approaches. These discussions may happen in small breakout groups or as a forum.
  • Praxis Modeling: this format will take participants through a strategy that you have used so that they can implement it in their own teaching. Presentations or workshops should include group/small table discussion and/or reflection opportunities, and practical application of this strategy, research, resources or guidance on implementation. These components should be described in the proposal.

What to Include in Your Proposal

  1. Abstract: A 200-250 word abstract should include a brief description of both the topic/theme of the presentation as well as how it will engage the audience.
  2. Format: Please specify the format of the concurrent programming (panel, coffee talk, praxis).
  3. Supplementals: In addition to the description, we recommend including the following in your proposal:

    • a set of objectives for the presentation,
    • and a brief list of scholarly sources that inform the presentation.

Faculty submitting a group proposal should submit together (include all names in the order you wish them to appear).

Criterion for Selection

  • Relevance to conference themes
  • Applicability to a variety of teaching contexts outside of discipline
  • Presentation format engaging for audience
  • Deepens understanding of issues related to teaching and learning
  • Overall clarity of proposal

Proposals will be reviewed and selected by FCPE Leadership and Senior Staff and the Office of the Provost.
