ICED – International Consortium for Educational Development
Pre-conference workshops: Call for proposals
The ICED Conference is held every two years and is organised by member organisations. ICED pre-conference workshops are professional development events to improve the practice of educational and academic developers. They are offered by experienced academic and educational developers from the membership of ICED’s national networks. They are practical, engaging, participatory half-day workshops which are designed to develop skills and share experience amongst the participants. We are expecting to be able to offer six or eight three-hour workshops on Sunday 22nd July.
Proposals – Colleagues who wish to offer a workshop are asked to submit a proposal covering the following areas:
- The educational or academic development theme of the workshop
- The intended learning outcomes for the participants|
- The timetable of the workshop and the educational strategy for its design
- The IT and other resources required
The proposal should contain a text of no more than 500 words which can be used in the conference programme and web site to advertise the workshop to participants.
Timetable – Proposals should be sent by February 15th to the ICED Administrator, Silvia Sovic, firstname.lastname@example.org. Proposers will be informed whether their offer has been accepted by February 22nd.
Please note – As well as quality, a factor in the selection of proposals will be the need to ensure a range of activities and avoidance of duplication. There is no payment for workshop leaders; fees charged to participants contribute to funding of ICED’s work worldwide. Offering a pre-conference workshop does not preclude submitting a seminar or workshop abstract to the conference on a similar theme.
