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).
Deep Dive Session Proposals are due September 1, 2018
Workshop, Poster, and Resource Session Proposals are Due October 5, 2018
  • Deep Dive Session – 2 hours or 3 hours, or full-day session (presented on Monday 2/25/19 only). Deep-dive sessions should provide professional development with clear deliverables and concrete "take-a-ways" for the attendees. Include an outline that indicates how you will utilize supplemental materials such as handouts and readings and include all active learning strategies to be used. Please indicate whether or not participants will be required to complete any pre-session work and, if so, include these materials with your proposal.
  • Interactive Workshop – 50 minutes (presented on Monday 2/25/19 or Tuesday 2/26/19). 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. Presentations should include explicit suggestions for transferring the skills, models, and ideas learned to attendees’ own institutions.
  • Poster Presentation or Resource Exchange – 50 minutes (presented on Tuesday 2/26/19 only). 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.
    • Poster Presentation: Posters should use data, text, images, and figures to describe the research or project. This format is best suited for reporting specific results of a research study or presenting information on service-learning, clinical or other community-based practices. Presenters will be provided an easel to display their foam board posters (approximately 24"x36")
    • Resource Exchange: This informal format is an opportunity to share innovative research activities, teaching techniques, curriculum designs, syllabi, or training manuals. Presenters are required bring resources for attendees including handouts, brochures, or display copies of manuals or publications. Presenters will be provided a small high top table (approximately 24”) for resources.
