The conference planning committee is seeking proposals that enhance and progress the conversation of religious, secular, and spiritual identity on college campuses. Presenters will be asked to identify the intended audience for their session, as well as, ACPA/NASPA Professional Competencies that the session will address. Additionally, the conference planning committee will select programs based upon the program's' relationship to the conference topics and learning outcomes.
Proposals will be evaluated based on:
content (is your proposal clearly articulated?);
relevance to a intended audience;
evidence of clearly stated outcomes and objectives;
contribution to the knowledge and practice of student affairs educators and religious, secular, and spiritual professionals within our communities.
For the 2018 NASPA Religious, Secular, and Spiritual Identities conference meeting, the planning committee is looking for these types of programs and/or papers to provide a holistic conference experience:
General Interest Session - A 60-minute presentation session that is ideal for a panel or multiple presenters submitting together. This is an option in which a presentation might include programs or papers on scholarship, research, campus and/or community programs, partnerships, and background information. This session provides an opportunity to gather input from other meeting participants in an intimate setting. This session is intended for individuals or concise group presentations on trending topics.
Mini-Institute - A 120-minute highly interactive session that teaches promising practices to enhance religious, secular, and spiritual identity development in the classroom, on campus and/or in the community.
Exploration Session - A 60 minute presenter-facilitated exploration of religious, secular, and spiritual identities. This might include facilitating a prayer, ritual, tradition, meditation, or embodied experience session. This session is intended for participants to experience different practices of faiths, beliefs, and identities.
Roundtable Reflection - A 60-minute presenter-facilitated discussion that allows participants to more deeply engage with an idea, program, research, or to reflect on their conference experience unencumbered by technology. Roundtable Reflection sessions will occur simultaneously in the plenary space.
