ACTC announces call for proposals for Classrooms of the Future XII

The Classrooms of the Future (COTF) Committee of the Associated Colleges of the Twin Cities (ACTC) announces its call for proposals for Classrooms of the Future XII. This year’s theme is “Classrooms of the Future: Critical Reflections on Technology."

COTF, in its 12th year, began at the University of St. Thomas and has expanded into a five-state regional conference under the aegis of the ACTC, and rotates among its five member institutions. This year, the conference will be held on May 23, the Tuesday after spring commencement, in UST’s Schulze Hall.

Dr. Stephen Brookfield, Distinguished Professor at UST, will keynote on “Critical Reflections on Technology,” relating his large body of work on critical theory, critical thinking and discussion to technology. For more information on Brookfield, visit his home page.

Classrooms of the Future is an opportunity for higher education professionals to come together to talk about their practices for teaching with technology, fostering a relaxed atmosphere to promote discussion and dialogue. Individual or group presentations, as well as student co-presenters, are encouraged. Presentations may be lecture or interactive hands-on format.

The COTF Review Committee invites all faculty and staff to submit proposals for the COTF conference sessions as well as the post-conference workshops. This year’s theme, “Classrooms of the Future: Critical Reflections on Technology,” invites you, as a presenter, to talk with your colleagues about:

  • Research on technology and learning
  • Instructional strategies that work
  • Technology innovations and open source ware
  • Emerging trends and hopes for the future

Don’t miss your chance to represent UST; submit a proposal for COTF XII before Wednesday, March 15.

Further information on submitting proposals, registration and the workshops can be found at the COTF Web site or by contacting Rosann Cahill, (651) 962-6272.
