NACTA Workshop Guidelines and Call for Proposals

Workshop proposals are encouraged from NACTA members, NACTA committees, and the conference host institution. Committees have the option to co-sponsor a workshop with another committee but this is not required. The Educational Issues and Teaching Improvement (EITI) Committee will encourage a thematic workshop from the host institution each year. Workshops should emphasize participation, often with hands-on or problem solving efforts. Workshops usually have a narrow focus or interest that will appeal to a smaller audience. Workshops are to be 2 hours in duration.

All workshop proposals must have a workshop coordinator. The workshop coordinator will submit the workshop proposals, and work with the host institution planning committee on workshop logistics. All workshop speakers must be registered for the annual meeting.

Workshops are reviewed and selected by the EITI Committee and a representative of the host institution planning committee.


Workshop Submission

All workshop submissions must include the following information:

  • Workshop Coordinator and contact information (Institution, email address, phone)
  • Workshop Title
  • Presenters – a list of presenters or individuals who will be presenting the workshop; this list should include their name, title, institution/organization, email address. This will be printed in the list of attendees.
  • Abstract – a brief description of the goals, objectives or topics to be covered in the workshop. Connections to the role and mission of NACTA should be incorporated into the abstract narrative. Abstract information will be used in the program.

Coordinators may also make a request for funds to support the workshop (i.e. used for travel for a speaker; shipment of equipment; printing of materials and shipping, etc.). The NACTA Executive Committee will determine if financial support is needed and will determine the amount to be awarded. The NACTA Executive Committee will determine if funding is to be allocated on or before the March Executive Committee meeting.
