This years' conference will feature presentations of Master Classes and Curriculum Walk-throughs.

Master Classes are a panel of instructors who have experience teaching a course in a particular topic where they have brought an innovative approach to their teaching. The panel will discuss and compare approaches including evaluations and observations.

A Course Walk-through is a quick (20 min) walk through of the course Syllabus, including the description, outcomes, major topics, assessments / assignments, materials used, typical course approach, and intended student audience. The goal is to give new instructors ideas about how courses may be constructed and allow experienced instructors to compare them to their own efforts.

A Program Walk-through is a quick (30 min) review of a program's curriculum and flow, it includes an overview of the outcomes, the students, the courses, and special features. It includes a brief discussion of the reasoning behind the program choices.

Instructors interested in participating in Master Class Panels or Curriculum walk-throughs should submit their interest including: The course type (basic, elective, focus area), course level (lower / upper division, Graduate), course title, and Course Syllabus which can be shared (may have redactions). For Programs, the level (AB/AS, BA/BS, Minor, Certificate, Graduate), the program focus, and a Course List or similar document to be shared.

Walk-throughs are not pitches for commercial courses, books, or courses mainly following a standardized curriculum.
