Welcome

Thank you for your interest in presenting at the 9th Annual Service Engagement Summit on February 25-26, 2019 in Indianapolis. 

This year's conference theme, “Listening. Speaking. Transforming”, is a part of a year-long look into the use of the many forms of dialogue as tools for crossing differences and improving lives in our communities.

Proposals should inform or advance the study and practice of service-learning and community engagement in higher education and fit one of the following formats. Preference will be given to the proposals that include the use of dialogue in one of its many forms (sustained, reflective, generative, deliberative, etc.).

Your proposal will be reviewed by using the following the criteria:

  1. Do the title and abstract match the presentation description?
  2. Does the primary audience designations correlate with the description?
  3. Are the objectives clearly stated?
  4. Does the proposal create a clear picture of how this presentation will flow?
  5. Are the content and/or skills discussed relevant to the intended audience?
  6. Are there opportunities for audience interaction?
  7. Can the objectives be met and activities completed in the time and format selected?
  8. Does the proposal show originality and insight?
  9. Is this a presentation you would want to attend?
  10. Is the session based in theory, research, and/or practice? (e.g., A clear theoretical, empirical, or pedagogical framework, with explicit justifications displaying knowledge of the state of the field.)
  11. Does the proposal use correct spelling, grammar, capitalization, and punctuation? (Does the proposal show effort in putting it together?)
  12. Does this proposal include the use of dialogue in one of its many forms (sustained reflective generative deliberative, etc.)?
  13. Does this proposal connect with this year's Service Engagement Summit theme (Listen. Talk. Transform.)?

Deep-dive sessions should provide professional development with clear deliverables and concrete "take-a-ways" for the attendees.

Presenters should be prepared to offer dynamic workshops that share information and best practices while encouraging creative thought and discussion, followed by a structured set of facilitated activities for audience participation.

Poster presentations and resource exchanges act as a showcase of scholarly work and program models in an informal setting. Attendees are free to move about the room to examine posters and resource exhibits and talk individually to the presenters. During this 50-minute session, please be prepared to discuss your project / resources to interested attendees in order to facilitate networking and further learning. Presenters can choose to present as a poster or resource exchange. Please read the descriptions carefully and choose your format based on focus and purpose of the presentation.
