Annual Conference

The 22nd Annual Conference Celebrating Teaching

October 22, 2015 and October 23, 2015

This year the conference committee will be using a conference organization feature hosted by Digital Commons @ Kent State University Libraries. Having this and future conferences in the Digital Commons system will allow participants to provide additional materials (if desired) and their conference presentations will be findable online!
When you first enter the system you will create an account if you do not already have one. Once the account is created you will be able to submit your proposal. Thank you for your support as we move towards this new system.
