A/V equipment and internet will be provided.

Proposal should include: A short description of the proposed teaching tip, the course or courses it is used in, and why it is effective.
Description: Share your favorite technology tip in ten minutes at roundtables. During a 50 minute session on Saturday, participants will switch tables every 15 minutes to learn about how you use technology to create efficiencies and/or improve teaching and learning. Your tip may involve novel approaches to using existing technology or may demonstrate cutting edge devices or software applications. If possible, bring the technology (hardware or software) to demonstrate. You may also want to consider bringing a handout with FAQs about the technology to help participants migrate towards implementation.
Proposal should include: A short description of the proposed technology tip, the course or courses it is used in, and why it is effective.
Description: Based on the overwhelming success of the 2014 and 2015 hands-on technology sessions, we will once again be offering individuals a chance to provide hands-on demonstrations of educational technology applications. In this Sunday morning session, conference participants will freely roam through the venue to learn about and try out different technology applications up close and personal.
Proposal should include: The name of the technology application (e.g., LiveScribe Pen) and a short description of how instructors would benefit from using it in their courses.
Effective Teaching Practices Forum
Description: Participants will share a teaching idea in a poster session. The poster will display a novel teaching tip or assignment for a course currently taught. Faculty should also be ready to discuss how to use this tip or assignment one-on-one with conference participants at the ETP sessions held on Saturday, August 6th.
Proposal should include: Course name, topic area, teaching tip or assignment idea, and a brief statement about why you believe this is a novel and effective approach.

The Program Advisory Committee strongly encourages all AAA members to consider volunteering to serve as reviewers, paper discussants, and session moderators.

These sessions will be held on Wednesday, August 10, 2016.Concurrent Paper and Research Forum Sessions —CLOSED Submission Deadline: January 6, 2016
Submissions are made by section/topic area.
