Extended Deadline for Poster Proposals

2016 Fall Faculty Conference: Visioning the Future: Connection & Collaboration
Thursday, October 13, 2016, 8:30 am – 5:00 pm

The 2016 Fall Faculty Conference of Northeastern University’s College of Professional Studies (CPS) will offer opportunities for learning and strengthening faculty mindsets around research and pedagogy.  The theme of this year’s conference is Visioning the Future: Connection & Collaboration and aims to bring CPS faculty together for a day of engaging discussions, information sharing, and networking.  The Conference will be divided into three main parts: a morning session featuring breakout sessions, poster presentations and discussions during lunch, afternoon discussion and networking groups, and a reception.

For this year’s conference, the planning committee is seeking proposals for faculty involvement in poster sessions.  Posters will be the highlight of the conference, as they will be displayed during the entire day and featured during lunch.  Posters also serve an important role in allowing presenters to receive feedback about their work and to share professional ideas with attendees.  Topics may include faculty research, innovative pedagogical approaches, projects, global engagement, online teaching and learning, practice, among others.  Posters that address the conference theme are especially welcome.  Virtual posters will be printed by the Conference team and displayed at the conference, and virtual presenters will have the opportunity to answer questions online.

Please follow this link to submit your poster proposal by August 1, 2016.  Presenters will be notified of acceptance on a rolling basis, along with receiving more specific guidelines for formatting the poster template.  Final completed posters must be submitted electronically by August 20, 2016.  Please note that students may collaborate with faculty members; however, a CPS faculty member must be listed as the lead presenter.  CPS faculty include part-time, half-time, and full-time faculty members.
