Call For Presenters

Teaching with Pizzazz! Conference
‘Building Communities in Higher Education’

KPU Faculty of Health Research & Scholarship Committee and KPU Office of Research and Scholarship Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU), Faculty of Health (FoH) invites faculty, administrators, students and industry partners to submit proposals for presentations at our 2nd annual ‘Teaching with Pizzazz!’ Conference, Building Communities in Higher Education.

“Building Community” is the key to everything we do and to our success. Community-Campus partnerships that integrate educational programs, local business and industry stakeholders, students and teachers work together in a variety of settings – real and virtual.

Building communities in higher education positively impacts learning. It offers “real world” opportunities that translate classroom theory into practice.

We look forward to presentations that highlight best practice, scholarly inquiry and/or strategies for successful community engagement. Topics may include but are not limited to: integrating open resources, building empowered classroom communities, creating strong and collaborative program communities and/or establishing effective service learning experiences.

KPU Faculty of Health invites you to come and share tools that you have found particularly useful within your own teaching practice. We welcome examples from the classroom, online, lab and experiential environments.

Sessions may be conducted in a variety of ways; formal and informal presentations, discussions, panels, workshops – your choice!                                                                                                             Presentations must fit within either a 20 or 45 minute time frame. Proposals will be subject to a blind peer review.
