The Second Annual World Summit of the IFNTF will be held from May 3-5, 2018 at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. The summit will bring together award-winning teachers, educators and students from around the globe to engage in thought-provoking presentations and panel discussions on nurturing and enhancing teaching excellence. The summit is organized by the International Federation of National Teaching Fellows (IFNTF), (www.ifntf.org) which was founded in 2016 with a mandate to bring national award winning teachers from around the world to share ideas and experiences in teaching and higher education. Following the successful first summit in Birmingham, UK in February 2017 where the theme was Defining Teaching Excellence within the Disciplines, the 2018 summit will focus on Nurturing Teaching Excellence across Disciplines. The key areas of the summit will revolve around the following key task areas, namely, creating a culture of teaching excellence, high-impact pedagogies, student engagement strategies and impactful teaching.
The summit will be hosted at Dalhousie University (www.dal.ca) and will coincide with the year during which the university celebrates its 200th year anniversary. The summit is lined up so that attendees will have an opportunity to also participate in another teaching and learning conference, namely, the Dalhousie Conference on University Teaching and Learning (DCUTL)(https://www.dal.ca/dept/clt/events-news/DCUTL.html)
that is being held on May 2nd and 3rd.
We welcome submissions for paper sessions. Papers can be theoretical, conceptual, and/or empirical. Authors should submit an extended summary limited to 1500 words (excluding references). Papers should be related to the key theme of the conference and the key task areas.
