CfP: AICAD ‘Student Success’

The AICAD Student Success Planning Committee is actively seeking proposals focusing on the concept of Student Success as it is developed and achieved throughout the pipeline of student engagement (from admissions to alumni status) at AICAD member institutions. As such, we would like to extend this invitation for proposals to AICAD members working in roles intersecting with student success, such as (but not limited to) Admissions & Enrollment, Academic Affairs, Career Services (including CIAD members), Student Affairs, Alumni Affairs and Technology. We are also interested in innovative proposals that relate to student success but may not fit neatly into any one category we have listed.

Do you have a collaborative program or method for building student development and engagement across divisions? How are you innovating to support students in, out, and after the classroom? We want to hear from you! Comprised of concurrent sessions 60 minutes in length, we invite proposals that delve into these questions and more.

Topics to consider:

  • Learning: Pedagogy, cognition and learning models

  • Best practices, initiatives, tools and technology

  • Helping students engage with and understand the political process

  • Increasing student engagement/ Impact of engagement in education

  • Predictive analytics

  • Integrating real-life skills and professional practice experiences in the art & design context

  • Learning management systems and other online collaboration and learning support tools

  • Tactics for making a seamless transition from student to alumnus

  • Diversity, inclusion and equity

  • Life after graduation

  • Mental health and well being

Conference Date: 14-16 June 2017, Pratt Institute

Submissions Deadline: March 15

Notification of Acceptance: April 15
