Spring 2021 Learning & Sharing Virtual Series Call for Presenters


The CUMU Learning & Sharing Virtual Series provides opportunities for members to do exactly that—learn, share, and connect with one another throughout the spring. CUMU member institutions, including students, faculty, staff, administrators and community partners are encouraged to participate in whatever capacity works for them.

All presentations are required to focus on one of four issue areas aimed to provide participants with knowledge and ideas to address issues impacting urban and metropolitan institutions and communities.

Session types include:

Interactive Workshops
Have you experienced success in the implementation of new processes, infrastructure, or policy approaches related to addressing a challenge or issue in your community or institution? Interactive Workshops should be focused; inform on their topic; and engage attendees around a question or task. Presenters could create an interactive component where attendees may work individually or in small groups. Participants should leave with ideas for action At its core, these are how-to sessions. 60-90 minutes.

Best Practice Sessions
Have you led a successful project, partnership, program, or case-study that is working at your institution? Presenters should showcase their work and/or methodologies, highlight what worked, and present positive outcomes. 30 minutes, including Q&A.

Lightning Sessions
Lightning presentations are quick, engaging, and should inspire attendees to seek you out to learn more. Most importantly, they are fun. Presenters should highlight an idea, success, approach, or trend; bring to light an issue or challenge; or give a personal perspective on a topic. Lightning presentations are 10 minutes and are paired with others and include a shared Q&A.

Submit your proposal for a presentation by February 16, 2021.
