Educators from across the United States and Canada who can contribute their experience and expertise with active and integrative learning, in its many varieties, and discuss how it is best encouraged and assessed, are invited to submit proposals for presentations and panels focusing upon their efforts to promote learning within individual courses, curricula or programs.

Presentations will occur during concurrent sessions on Wednesday, Jan. 7, and Thursday, Jan. 8, 2015.
