Georgia State University Conference on Digital Literacy

February 2-3, 2017

It is a pleasure to invite you to submit proposals for Georgia State University’s Conference on Digital Literacy. The conference is organized by the GSU Department of English and The Center for Excellence in Teaching & Learning and will take place at the Atlanta campus on Thursday, February 2nd and Friday, February 3rd. The GSU Conference on Digital Literacy is a faculty-organized event for Georgia State University faculty, students, staff, and administrators from any discipline or department who want to learn more about using and implementing digital tools to enhance teaching and learning. This open conference will provide an opportunity for professional development, community building, and critical conversation related to digital pedagogy and scholarship.

 Topics of interest

  • Are you a faculty member or graduate teaching assistant using technology to enhance learning in your classroom and want to share?
  • We are seeking individual instructors and their students, from any discipline, to present experiences with technology in the classroom in a roundtable discussion format.
  • Although we’d love to hear about your mastery of a particular digital tool or strategy we’re just as interested in hearing about critical insights, and your students’ experiences engaging with those practices.
  • We strongly encourage proposals that include students as collaborators and roundtable participants.
  • The content of your presentation can include digital projects you’re currently working on this semester and should highlight lessons learned and practicality of approach.
  • Rather than long papers, we suggest alternative formats, including show and tell or poster-style sessions, workshops, and short position statements followed by extended discussion among presenters and attendees.
