Subject: 2014 CUE Conference- Information and call for Proposals!
This year's CUE Conference will be held May 2, 2014, at LaGuardia Community College. Our theme is "Learning Inside and Outside the Classroom", and our keynote speaker will be Dr. George D. Kuh. Our conference web site, including program information and registration and proposal submission forms, can be found here: http://laguardia.edu/CUEconference2014.
Our goal for the conference is to bring together faculty and staff from across the university to share ideas and practices which reach across the institutional divisions which too often hinder our efforts to educate the "whole student". We want to hear about efforts to bridge the cognitive and affective dimensions of learning, or to influence the dispositions of students toward greater self-efficacy and, of course, toward more successful outcomes. We want to know how these innovations and collaborations are working, what impact they are having on how we teach and how students learn, and how their successes (or setbacks) can help us learn how to plan for the future. Our conference tracks reflect some of the sites where such efforts are often housed, but we also encourage presentations which cross these locations in the service of reaching the whole student.
Our keynoter is an internationally recognized educator whose work has broken ground for many years in exactly the areas our conference will address. See the conference web site for more information on Dr. Kuh and his keynote talk.
Speaking for all of us at LaGuardia, we look forward to welcoming you on May 2, and to a productive and highly enjoyable day.
