International Conference on
Learning and Administration in Higher Education
(Click above link for full conference information)
We encourage the submission of full papers, and abstracts to any of the following tracks:
This track is not limited to just pedagogical research but also includes papers that share experiences and viewpoints on the state of learning/teaching in higher education today and tomorrow. We believe that much of the learning process is not discipline specific and that we can all benefit from looking at research and practices outside our own discipline. Too often in higher education, expertise in a field of study is assumed to automatically translate into the ability to help students learn that field of study.
The ideal submission would take a general focus on learning rather than a discipline-specific perspective. For example, instead of focusing on Motivating Students in Group Projects in a specific course, you might broaden the perspective to Motivating Students in Group Projects in Upper Division Courses or simply Motivating Students in Group Projects. The objective here is to share your work with the larger audience.
Typical topics have included using qualitative measures and assignments in a quantitative course, importance of prerequisites, internships, service learning, student/faculty feedback, team issues, online and hybrid courses, academic honesty, ethics in IS, can ethics be taught, Forsyth's ethics position, learning styles, effective use of technology, experiential learning, etc.
Academic Administration Track
We believe that many of the challenges facing academic departments are not discipline specific and that learning how other departments address these challenges will be beneficial. Typical topics have been accreditation, faculty moral, faculty productivity, how to make the transition from faculty to administration and back again, meeting external standards, optimizing course schedules, caught in the middle between higher administration and faculty, IS in academic administration, ethics in scholarship, etc.
