What are short courses? Short courses are intended as training or hands-on informational sessions that can be presented in approximately 75 minutes.  Short course topics may address (a) teaching innovations; (b) areas of research; (c) new theoretical perspectives; (d) application of a body of knowledge; (e) skill development; or other topics of interest to scholars.

Individuals are encouraged to incorporate this year’s convention theme “Harboring Innovation” into the design of their course proposals, whether this pertains to innovating the field, our scholarship, our teaching, or our outreach.  How have we innovated and/or how we need to innovate to remain relevant, cutting-edge, and unique?
