Proposals are being accepted for the following types of contributions: 

• Short talks – 15-minute talks on “best practices” related to teaching. These might be related to the process of course/syllabus design, a specific activity or unit in your course, a type of classroom or lab/field trip experience, an assignment that has been particularly successful, the results of an assessment of learning outcomes, a research project or “experiment” (published or un-published) conducted in the classroom, or any other type of short talk related to teaching, learning, and/or education in arboriculture and urban forestry.

 • Workshop – A proposal for a 90-minute interactive workshop for participants to engage in. Should propose a clear objective and learning outcomes that participants will gain by attending the proposed workshop. Topic or objective can be anything related to teaching, learning, and/or education in arboriculture and urban forestry. 

• “Stories” – Apply to tell a 6-8-minute story of a particular teaching experience in a session entitled “Stories from the classroom: The most out-of-the-box thing I’ve done that worked (or didn’t” 

• Poster – A poster on anything related to education, teaching, learning, curriculum or program development, etc., within the field of arboriculture, urban forestry, or a closely related field. These do not have to be (and most will not be) the typical scientific research poster, but rather a poster that describes a particular insight you have re: teaching/learning, etc. (See also “Short talks” description for more ideas.)
