Call for Proposals

East Tennessee State University

3rd Annual Call for Proposals

Conference for High-Impact Instructional Practices (CHIIPs)

Conference Theme: Teaching Naked: Uncovering the Human Dimension in Higher Education

ETSU’s 3rd Annual Conference for High-Impact Instructional Practices will be Monday, August 3rd and Tuesday, August 4th, 2020, featuring keynote speaker Dr. José Bowen.  Dr. Bowen’s books, Teaching Naked and  Teaching Naked Techniques (co-authored with  Edward Watson), challenge us to make the sacred in-class time we have with students “massively better.” Dr. Bowen writes, “Our most precious (and expensive) asset is student-faculty interaction, and ‘naked’ pedagogy is an attempt to…maximize deep learning.” The conference committee invites you to submit proposals that connect to the conference theme and that highlight what you are doing in your classroom – online or face-to-face – to contribute to excellence in teaching.

Proposal submissions are now closed!


For questions or additional information, contact Dr. Amy Johnson at  or 423-439-8661.
