Call for Proposals — Independent Study: Traditions & Transformations
We invite you to submit a proposal for presentation at the ninth annual
American Association for Collegiate Independent Study (AACIS)
conference, to be held November 8-10, 2001 in Athens, Ohio. The
conference is sponsored by Ohio University. Presenters are expected to
pay fees and are encouraged to attend the entire conference.
AACIS is a young, vibrant organization of independent study
professionals. Our membership has grown to nearly 400 in eight years.
Our annual conference provides opportunities for participants to share
insights and experiences with their peers – administrators, advisers,
curriculum developers, faculty, student services personnel, support
staff, and others.
Each year we discuss the classic continuing concerns of independent
study and investigate new developments in the field. We encourage
proposals on topics related to the areas of research and assessment,
operations and student services, curriculum development, editing,
marketing, and administration. Presentations may be made by individuals
or groups, and may use a variety of formats (lecture, panel discussion,
group interaction). Special consideration is given to proposals which
incorporate the conference theme.
