Call for proposals
The Crowdmark Community Conference is dedicated to furthering the conversation on authentic assessment, effective teaching, and successful learning. This one-day online users conference will spotlight the most innovative and relevant practices in teaching and learning today.
For our users conference, we invite you to submit a proposal to give a presentation, panel discussion, or workshop.
Want to know what we’re looking for? Check out the guidelines.
All sessions should discuss innovative uses of Crowdmark for one or more of the following:
How do you grade more quickly and effectively, while giving rich feedback?
Enhancing the learning process
How do you help students reach learning outcomes? Are there elements of authentic assessment incorporated into your course structure?
Collaboration of instructional teams
How do you onboard, train, and maintain cohesiveness of grading teams? Is there a process that you follow to ensure consistency of grading?
Remote assessment and learning
How have you improved upon remote learning through assessment? Are there in-person or hybrid lessons that you’ve been able to use?
In-person assessment and learning
How have you improved upon in-person learning through assessment? Are there online or hybrid lessons that you’ve been able to use?
Hybrid assessment and learning
How have you improved upon hybrid learning through assessment? Are there online or in-person lessons that you’ve been able to use?
What aspects of group assessment have you found to be most beneficial? How do you use this technique throughout the term?
Advanced learning analytics
How do you examine data or content to discover deeper insights, make predictions, or generate recommendations to improve teaching and learning?
Are there unique ways in which you design your assessments to ensure that students perform well? What innovative assessment types have you employed in your courses?
Innovation in the classroom
What projects have you worked on above and beyond “traditional” teaching and learning? How have you used educational technology to further student learning?
Supporting unique student needs
Accessibility for underserved and marginalized students–as well as students with disabilities–is always a challenge. How have you supported students who may not fit the “traditional” model?
How do you encourage academic integrity in the classroom? Are there methods or techniques that you employ to reduce the motivation to cheat?
Sessions should be 30-60 minutes in length, including any discussion / Q&A periods.
