Call for proposals

We invite proposals from a range of disciplines (such as ethics, learning design, academic advising and STEM fields) that make use of data to support an integrative approach for student success. In particular we are keen to receive proposals of innovative projects that contribute to student success and throughput. Proposals should ideally demonstrate the application of learnings from the Siyaphumelela programme in their project and present empirical evidence of the intervention improving student success.

In particular, the conference is interested in:

● Leadership and innovation for student success especially related to equity and Holistic Student Success efforts

● The role of students in shaping student success

● Contemporary Learning design for today's students

● Authentic approaches to evaluation
