Poster Session Guidelines

Submission Deadline: September 15, 2006

Guidelines for submitting posters for Friday, October 6, of the 2006 PKAL F21 National Assembly

Poster Session

The 2006 PKAL F21 National Assembly will address issues relating to:

  • Coming Together to Build Collegial Curricular Connections
  • Coming Together to Focus on Student Learning
  • Coming Together to Connect Beyond Your Campus Community
  • Coming Together to Work Toward Institutional Transformation
  • Coming Together to Advance PKAL.
To that end, PKAL invites all F21 members to submit a poster relating to their efforts to address these issues.

Your submission will be used in several ways:

  • All poster submissions will be part of a PKAL Leadership Initiative portfolio, that captures the ideas, insights, and materials explored during the 2006 PKAL F21 National Assembly.
  • A representative group of posters will be selected for exhibition during the poster session on Friday evening, preceded and followed by facilitated discussions about what makes institutional change successful.
  • During the 2006 - 2007 academic year, select posters and other F21 materials (F21 statesments, etc.) will be incorporated into postings for PKAL Volume IV: What works, what matters, what lasts as appropriate, and used as a resource for future PKAL leadership efforts.
