Call for Proposals: 2019
Opening Doors to Increase Diversity in Study Abroad
Session Proposal Criteria
Over two-and-a-half days of the conference, sessions are the venue for presentation and discussion of ideas around the conference theme and other relevant topics in study abroad. Proposals should include a comprehensive outline for a 75-minute session, including 15-20 minutes of audience participation or engagement. There should be no more than four presenters and no fewer than two presenters, including the chair.
Session Proposal Guidelines:
- Session title and description (300-500 words)
- Target audience
- Chair and presenter information, including professional contact information (affiliation, title, email, address, etc.) and a brief bio (75 words or less)
- Outline learning objectives/goals, content, and takeaways participants can readily use
- Include outline of audience engagement or activity
Session proposals will be reviewed and rated on a scale of 0-5 based on how well they:
- Represent collaboration or perspectives of both faculty and international offices.
- Exhibit diversity in speakers and perspectives. Proposals that include varying institutions, organizations, and/or students are preferred.
- Align with CIEE’s Annual Conference theme and are unique to the CIEE Annual Conference.
Present practical information that participants can readily apply.
- Demonstrate innovative ideas, unique and thought-provoking topics, current research or theories, or recognized best practices. If submitting a proposal based on a case study, include independent research to support or disprove your theory.
- Engage the audience
