Call for Proposals

This year’s conference theme, All Aboard: Creating an Engaging Atmosphere for Student Success will encourage dialogue about how we, as learning center professionals, can create an environment that encourages our students to become involved and engaged in their academic community.


To this end, there are four proposal tracks:

Spring Conference Proposal Submission

Presenters are encouraged to focus presentations around the selected theme of student engagement. Please select the track most closely aligned to your presentation topic. Presenters can choose from:

  • A thirty (30) minute presentation

  • A sixty (60) minute presentation

  • A poster to be presented during the poster session


Peer tutors and student workers are encouraged to submit proposals for presentations or posters. All proposals will be blind reviewed.

Everyone involved with learning center work, including both professionals and student tutors/staff, are encouraged to submit. Although MDCLCA is a Maryland-based affiliate, we do invite conference submissions and participation from learning center staff outside of Maryland, especially those in the Capital Region, including Washington, DC and Virginia.
