Building KU's Teaching and Learning Community

Teaching Slam Proposals

Instructors in all disciplines are welcome to submit proposals. Presentations will be grouped into one of three sub-areas: STEM; humanities and arts; and social sciences, journalism, business, psychology, and education. Each of the sub-areas will meet for its own Teaching Slam. This will allow for the sharing of ideas with colleagues who are most likely to be able to use your great ideas.

Deadline for proposals is noon Friday, March 4. We’ll choose the best variety for presentation and let everyone know the results by early the following week. The Teaching Slams will take place from 2 to 3:30 p.m. on Friday, March 25 at The Commons, LEEP2 (School of Engineering), and at the Center for Teaching Excellence. 


Please choose the student level, class level, and class size that best describe your proposed focus course.
Please note: We’ll have room for only a small number of Class Demos, so your chances for selection are greater with a Six + Six.
Max. 400 characters
