Students First: Why Accelerated Teaching Modalities are the Future of Higher Education

Tuesday, July 18th - Pre-Conference Events
July 19th & 20th - Main Conference

The Council for Accelerated Programs (CAP) is seeking roundtable proposals for its 2017 Annual Conference in Denver. You don't want to miss this wonderful opportunity to share your talent and knowledge with like-minded professionals in higher education! Proposals will be accepted until Friday, March 3rd.

Those selected to facilitate will receive the CAP Member registration fee, and CAP Members who are selected will receive an extra special gift from CAP.

Topics/Themes to consider include:

Multicultural Issues in Accelerated Learning
Research in Accelerated Learning
Transformative Teaching in Accelerated Learning
Community-Building in Accelerated Programs
Evaluating Instructor Effectiveness in Accelerated Classes
Credit Hour Compliance in Accelerated Programs
The Value of YouTube in the Accelerated Classroom
Online/Blended Accelerated Learning Innovations and Best Practices
Innovative Practices in Accelerated Learning
Innovative Practices in Teaching in Accelerated Programs
Innovative Practices in Marketing Accelerated Programs
Ways to Differentiate your Accelerated Programs in a Competitive Market
The Changing Needs of the Adult Learner

Roundtable facilitators should be prepared to lead an interactive discussion of their topic with interested participants. Hand-outs may also be provided to participants. Roundtable sessions will be 50 minutes in length, and can be facilitated by one or two people. CAP may also offer Workshop Sessions which will be longer in duration. CAP representatives may contact you to inquire if you are interested in facilitating a workshop instead if your topic is a good fit for the workshop schedule.

All proposals must be based on work or initiatives occurring in accelerated programs at a post-secondary institution. Proposals will be evaluated based on their specific theme and current criticality to accelerated programs.

Proposals should be a paragraph or two in length, and must include facilitator names, titles, institutional affiliations, daytime phone numbers and email addresses. The preferred method of submission is via email as an attached Word document. Please submit proposals to Jeannie McCarron at by Friday, March 3rd. A conference committee will meet to review all proposals. You will be notified as to the status of your proposal no later than Friday, March 17th.

We look forward to receiving your proposal, and seeing you in Denver in July!

Contact Jeannie McCarron for questions.
