Call for Proposals
11th Regional Conference on Supplemental Instruction
Late Spring 2023
Sponsored by the Academic Success Center, Texas A&M University
60 Minute Conference Sessions: we invite proposals on strategic plans for 2021-2022, using a hybrid approach of both online and face-to-face training, supervising/evaluating SI leader performance, and forwarding thinking program initiatives. These sessions should be interactive and engaging and involve discussions with those in the session.
10-15 Minute Video: we invite videos that explain aspects of your program or that showcase a technology tool or strategy. Examples, explain your session plan template or observiation form, show us how you use TEAMs/Discord, etc. to communicate with your leaders, give us a tour of your LMS site's training modules, show us how SI leaders upload session plans or how you track hours and responsibilities, share an activity that students really enjoyed, or do a "how to" video on how to use a cool internet tool to facilitate collaboration. These videos will be posted on the conference site and available throughout the conference and for a couple of weeks after the conference has concluded.
Be sure to submit a separate written proposal for each proposal type. For the video proposal, we will contact you after reviewing and accepting your written proposal regarding additional directions on how to submit your video.
Program proposals will be reviewed for selection based on appropriateness, creativity of approach, and/or demonstration of expertise by presenters. Evidence of assessment will strengthen the proposal.
