NACV-dag 2020: Utrecht, 17 januari. Lessons Learned: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly
Call for Contributions
Over the past years, NACV meetings have focused on a wide variety of developments in the field, from globalization and internationalization to diversity and technological innovations. In 2020 we want to look ahead as well as look back: what have we learnt so far about the teaching of academic communicative skills? What are good ways of helping our students get better at presenting, writing, listening and reading? What turned out to be bad ideas in retrospect? What are effective and not-so-effective ways of collaborating with content teachers in the curriculum? What works when it comes to persuading policy makers to support our initiatives, and what doesn’t?
In other words: we present a broad conference theme, and are keen to concentrate on sharing knowledge and experiences. Reflecting on bloopers, failures and mistakes can be highly valuable, which is why we hope you’ll be willing to share those experiences, too. We warmly invite you to submit a proposal for a contribution to this NACV day. Any contributions on oral skills are particularly welcome!
You can choose from three ‘traditional’ formats as well as a number of new ones:
• presentation (30 minutes plus 10 minutes for questions and discussion): share information about your research, project and method
• workshop (40 minutes): give your colleagues hands-on insight into something you have developed
• discussion (intro 5 minutes, followed by 35 minutes discussion): ask your colleagues to think through a particular question or problem
• project input (20 or 40 minutes): pitch your project in 5 minutes max. and use your colleagues’ input to develop it further
• expert session (15 minutes): offer your expertise in a particular field and be prepared to answer questions from colleagues
• lessons learnt (15 minutes): present the success or failure of your project in max. 5 slides with little text and discuss it with colleagues (3 contributions will be combined into 1 session; you can also choose to propose a session together with two colleagues)
Deadline for submission: October 1, 2019
