Call for Presenters

PCC is Oregon’s largest postsecondary institution. In the 2014-2015 academic year, PCC served 84,995 students. That is a huge number of students and they are a very diverse group.

Our job as educators is to deliver accessible, quality education to support the academic, professional, and personal development of the diverse students and communities we serve. This year’s 2016 Anderson Conference theme addresses just that: The Responsive Educator: Reaching & Teaching Diverse Learners

We invite your interactive workshop proposals that address this conference theme which might include topics on:

  • Teaching & Learning Styles
  • Diversity in Abilities
  • Veterans’ Issues
  • Universal Design
  • Dismantling Barriers Faced by Trans* Students
  • Meeting the Needs of Students of Color
  • Demystifying Difference
  • Intercultural Communication
  • Teaching Across Socioeconomic Divides
  • Building Community in the Classroom
  • Collaboration among Diverse Colleagues
  • Differentiated Instruction Strategies
  • Racial, Ethnic, & Religious Diversity in the Classroom

Submit your proposal as soon as possible, or contact your TLC coordinator about a workshop you’d like to see at the conference.

Workshop Structure: Each workshop will be 60 minutes in length. We are specifically seeking folks who will lead interactive sessions. These sessions should utilize the best teaching practices that we seek to employ more in our classrooms.

Please send proposals by October 28th, 2015 to: tlc.ca@pcc.edu with the subject line Anderson Conference 2016 Proposal.
