Teaching & Learning Fair Submission

The Teaching & Learning Fair abstract submissions online portal is now open, and will remain so until Nov 1, 2020. Note that this portal is independent of the one used for submissions to the main NASSM conference. If you are having difficulty logging in, it may be because you have not yet created an account for your T&LF submission.

Welcome to the website for submitting abstracts for the NASSM 2021 Teaching & Learning Fair. Please refer to the Call For Abstracts for more details about the submission guidelines, format, and deadlines. All abstract submissions must be made online. Online submission of abstracts will be accepted starting on October 1, 2020, and will be available until November 1, 2020 at 11:59 PM PST.

The NASSM Teaching & Learning Fair exists as conduit for the sharing of pedagogical ideas and strategies. As such, research abstracts are not permitted. Abstracts are limited to 100 words or less and will be subjected to a blind review. No preference will be given to longer abstracts. The review criteria will be based on the "Teaching & Learning Fair" type within the NASSM abstract review criteria.

Authors may only submit and appear on one teaching and learning fair abstract. This can be in addition to the two traditional abstracts (i.e., oral, poster, symposium, or lightning talk).

Please note that the information that is submitted with your abstract is what is used to generate the online and published abstracts, as well as the presentation schedule. As such, submitting authors should verify the correctness of all of the information provided. Please pay careful attention to the following:

  • If your co-authors have alternate formats for their names, please check with them to ensure that you are entering what they normally use in their academic writing.
  • Do not use abbreviations or acronyms in the university names.
  • Use title case capitalization for the title of your abstract.
  • Do not include the title or author information within the body of your abstract.
  • Do not insert extra line breaks between paragraphs, or manually space in an indent for the first line of the paragraphs. Our template automatically formats the abstracts and such extra spacing must then manually be removed.
  • APA style must be used for all referencing.
  • Make sure you proof-read your abstract before completing the submission. The system will provide a preview page as the last step of the submission process.
  • Abstracts are limited to 100 words or less.

A categorization and context mechanism is used to help organize the review process and scheduling of accepted abstracts. We recommend authors consider the lists below in advance of submitting their abstracts. Selections from the category/sub-category and context lists will be required during the submission process.
