Hosting the STLHE Conference

A Call for Proposals for STLHE 2018

The Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (STLHE) is soliciting proposals from central-Canadian (Québéc and Ontario) colleges and universities to host, or co-host, its 2018 Annual Conference in June 2018. (The conference will be hosted in Western Canada in 2019 and return to central Canada in 2020.)

We would be honoured if your institution would consider preparing a proposal, or perhaps teaming up with a local institution to create a collaborative proposal, to host this prestigious event. Each year the STLHE Conference attracts approximately 500 top-notch educators, educational developers, 3M National Teaching and Student Fellows, and partnering companies and institutions from across the country and from all over the world, thus presenting the host campus with the opportunity to showcase its institution’s approach to the challenges and rewards of teaching and learning in higher education.

The Conference Manual and Conference Budget Template (DropBox file link) are your guides to preparing a proposal.  Please play particular attention to the section of the Manual STLHE Conference Monthly Planning Guide: 18-24 Months before the Conference. This section of the manuals addresses the preparation and evaluation of proposals. Appendix A: Sample proposal to host the STLHE Annual Conference  includes a sample that should serve as a guide in preparing yours.

Proposals must be emailed to Tim Howard (STLHE Administrative unit) by May 1, 2016.  The Board of Directors will begin reviewing proposals during Board Meetings in May and early June and will make its final recommendation at the June 2016  Board meeting held during the annual conference in London.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact STLHE Vice-president Denise Stockley.

Thank you for your interest.
