This year's conference theme will examine "The Impact of Applied Learning.” The theme should allow and encourage submissions that share the impact of applied learning activities in all of its forms and types. Submissions might address the results of an applied learning experience using qualitative or quantitative data, or submissions might address community impact or engagement. Submissions are encouraged addressing the conference theme but all applied learning submissions are welcome. Presenters may submit their work as an individual paper (that will be placed on a panel with others), poster, panel presentation (three or more speakers), roundtable, or as an applied learning demonstration.

Applied learning focuses on learning that occurs in contexts outside of the traditional classroom setting, such as experiential learning, study abroad programs, independent research experiences, internships or practica, service-learning, client-based projects, or co-curricular programming. This year’s conference will provide a venue for scholars, practitioners, students and industry leaders to gather and share their work on the impact of applied learning.
