The ACBSP Annual Conference Committee invites proposals for presentations during ACBSP Conference 2018. Presentation proposals may be either practitioner or research based. Practitioner-based presentations should be interactive with a high level of participant engagement and hands-on experience. Research-based presentations should include the appropriate research design and scientific methodology. This can be a presentation based on a previous presentation or research, or newly introduced presentation and research content.

Three Educational Session Tracks for Your Presentation

All proposals must indicate one of the following concurrent conference tracks: 

Transforming Student Success through Recruitment, Retention & Re-entry

Faculty have a profound impact on the overall student experience. In today’s complex Higher Education market, faculty are required to engage in nearly every aspect of the Three Rs. Once reserved for professional staff, faculty responsibilities may now involve recruiting students, developing new methods of engaged teaching practice to retain students, as well as serving students who are returning to school after an interruption in their studies. Join us on this journey to identify strategies for transforming student success in the ever-changing 21st Century.

Teaching Excellence
This track focuses on best practices for the classroom, assessment of student learning and online delivery of learning.

Accreditation Process
This sessions focus on the actual processes associated with initial accreditation, maintenance of accreditation and reaffirmation of accreditation. Presentations should demonstrate linkages between institutional experience and the accreditation processes. Potential topics include involving the faculty in the preparation of self-study or quality assurance reports, lessons learned and obtaining administrative support when pursuing and obtaining accreditation.
