Concurrent Sessions 2019

DEADLINE: April 15th, 2019

The Annual Institute program includes a series of standing sessions sponsored by the Reacting Consortium Board. Topics to be addressed at the 2019 institute include:

▪ The Classroom Experience: RTTP According to Students*

▪ The Art of Teaching in the RTTP Classroom: A Roundtable Discussion*

▪ Using RTTP in Writing and Speaking Courses*

▪ Sensitive Content in the Reacting Classroom*

▪ The Path to Publication**

  * Recommended for participants new to RTTP
** Recommended for experienced RTTP instructors 

We also invite individual faculty and/or teams to share their experiences with RTTP at the institute by submitting a concurrent session proposal. We encourage proposals that reflect the variety of ways individual instructors or programs are using/tailoring RTTP games to achieve specific outcomes for their institutions, to engage faculty, to rejuvenate teaching and learning, or to develop/revise new curricular programs in a variety of disciplines.

 (Please note: All session facilitators at the institute will be responsible for the appropriate registration fees, travel, and lodging expenses.)

Session Formats

Concurrent sessions will be roughly 85 minutes in length and will likely have an audience ranging from 20 to 40 participants.   There is no set format for these sessions:  they might consist of a hands-on workshop, video presentation, individual presentations, a discussion panel, or a roundtable involving participants’ questions.  We encourage collaborative proposals among faculty from multiple institutions, but individual faculty or administrators are also encouraged to submit proposals so that we may group them into sessions around a common theme. Interested individuals might also solicit co-presenters by posting a comment on the RTTP Facebook Faculty Lounge.

Proposal Guidelines

Proposals should indicate the intended session format and focus on broad issues related to student learning, teaching, faculty development, or curriculum development and RTTP. The following is a list of topics of interest that have arisen from recent discussions in the RTTP Facebook Faculty Lounge and elsewhere. Ideas may certainly be presented which are not included on this list

  • RTTP online or in hybrid courses
  • Assessing Reacting to the Past
  • RTTP for STEM classes, STEM faculty for RTTP classes
  • Reacting in international/language learning courses
  • Adapting RTTP for large or small classes

For further ideas on relevant topics, proposers may wish to review the concurrent session information from the 2018201720162015201420132012 and 2011 institutes.
