Many people decide to go to a session based on title alone. Please provide a descriptive session title that is pithy, catchy, and accurately reflects the content of the session (people complain when it doesn’t!). Examples of well-received sessions with catchy titles: Any Given Monday: Winning the Student Engagement Game, Gamification: Why Games are ADDICTIVE and Your Course is NOT, Your Slides are Terrible and Other Presentation Sins, Poll Dancing in the Classroom and Other Tools of Engagement.
In 125 words or less, please provide an accurate description of the session and what participants will enjoy. This abstract will be included in the session listing.

Learning Objectives: List 2-3 learning objectives and/or take-aways for your session. For inspriation visit: http://www.celt.iastate.edu/teaching/effective-teaching-practices/revised-blooms-taxonomy

Describe the elements of engagement you will include in your session (e.g., discussion, activities, student response systems, question and answer periods, etc.), especially if your session is primarily a panel or uses a lecture format. One short Q&A session only at the end of your session does not count as adequate engagement.
Include a short (50 words or less) biography, addressing your qualifications for leading the proposed session and written in the third person. If the session will have up to three session leaders, provide a bio for each. If the session will have more than three session leaders, provide a bio for the primary leader and a general description of the remaining team members.
