Call for Proposals

2023 Call for Proposals (Closed)

The E.C. Moore Symposium on Excellence in Teaching provides an opportunity for instructors of all ranks and appointment types across Indiana to share their innovative practices in teaching and learning and to engage with a nationally renowned speaker. This year’s E.C. Moore Symposium will be held on March 24, 2023 at the IUPUI Campus Center. Proposals for all session types are due December 5, 2022 by 11:59 p.m.


A key component of the symposium is the communication and sharing of new ideas in teaching that promote engaging, inclusive, and equitable student learning experiences and student success. The symposium review committee is seeking session proposals for three types of sessions: interactive presentations, TED-like talks, and Show and Tell sessions. See the full call for proposals at the bottom of this page which outlines key features of each session type, guidelines for submission, and evaluative criteria.
