Call for Proposals: Focus on Teaching and Technology Conference
Proposals due May 1

Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to consider attending or submitting proposals to the Focus on Teaching and Technology Conference (FTTC), an annual regional conference planned by representatives from nearly 15 institutions. 

Webster University community members have presented at this conference in past years.  

This year's conference is Sept. 28-29, 2018, at the University of Missouri - St. Louis (UMSL). Organizers are soliciting proposals from presenters who can offer attendees both a vision of the impact and importance of their topic and concrete, practical examples of real-world implementation.

Topic and idea recommendations include: innovative use of a technology tool, social media in instruction, mobile learning, ePortfolios, big data/data analytics and student engagement strategies. This is an opportunity to share innovative technology and teaching experiences or forward this information to interested colleagues and encourage their participation. 

Elvir Mandzukic, Faculty Development coordinator, is serving as the point of contact for Webster representation. Contact Mandzukic at with any questions.

Proposal Deadline

Submit your proposal online before May 1, 2017, using the online submission system.
