Your proposals will be peer-reviewed, and you will be notified by April 19, 2023, if you are selected to be one of the presenters.

  • Applying cognitive learning theories throughout the curriculum
  • Employing tips and techniques for varied classroom environments e.g., online asynchronous, remote synchronous, flipped classroom, and adaptive learning environments

The “ED” talk sessions are designed to be dynamic and engaging.
