Proposal Submission Form

Proposals Due October 15th


The landscape of higher education is continually evolving, and it is vital for educators and institutions to leverage emerging technologies and innovative practices to enhance the teaching and learning experience.  This is even more so with the rapid emergence of artificial intelligence (AI) as we are in a new era of technology and we (DET/CHE) have been and are higher education leaders at the forefront building technology foundations, driving transformational change, and emerging innovation.  With this in mind, we invite you to actively participate in our conference by submitting your proposals and taking advantage of early registration benefits.

We encourage passionate educators, staff, administrators, and professionals from diverse backgrounds to share their expertise, experiences, and innovative ideas with the broader educational community. Whether you have successfully integrated technology into your curriculum, conducted research in educational technology, implemented AI solutions in learning environments, or have any other insights related to DET/CHE, we welcome your proposal submissions.

Panel Discussions (30 minutes for a diverse group of colleagues you bring together to discuss a conference themed-topic)

Hot Topic Recording (5 to 10 minutes per-recorded sessions that will be uploaded to our website.  These sessions/presenters will be promoted & highlighted during the conference, yet not played. Rather our attendees will have access to watch at anytime on their own)
