Call for presenters for the ALDinHE Practitioner Event on 8th December 2020
The first of our new online ALDinHE Practitioner Events will be held on Tuesday 8th December 2020.
We are looking for presenters/facilitators for these events. We are not looking for formal presentations from experts who have all the answers (although if you do have all the answers you’re particularly welcome…). Instead, the purpose of the presentations will be to stimulate discussion and share ideas and good practice, which is a feature of the regional events that colleagues most appreciated and which we want to retain. We are open to various formats for sessions, from brief lightning talks (5 minutes) through to workshops (45 minutes). We will have the option to use breakout spaces if we have large numbers of attendees.
For information about some possible formats for your session, please see the ALDinHE Conference guide to choosing a session type
If you would like to present at the symposium, please complete this brief expression of interest form .
Calling new presenters for the LD@3 20/21 Programme!
We are looking for 20-30 minute presentations on all and any aspects of learning development. This could be an opportunity to tell the community about new innovations in your teaching or practice, to test out new ideas with a receptive audience or present part of your work that may go on to publish.
Presentations will be hosted online at 3pm with opportunity for questions from participants.
If you would like to present at an LD@3 session please complete the Google form below and include an abstract of 200-250 words. We will be accepting proposals throughout the year.
The 2020-21 Symposium-Over-Time
In the past, ICALLD has hosted an international symposium every two years (see here for details on some of these events). This year, in response to a changing and demanding global context, the members of the ICALLD committee decided to host a “symposium-over-time.” As such, there will be a series of one-hour professional development opportunities over the majority of the 2020-21 academic year, held approximately every two months. Hosts will come, in turn, from each of the member associations. (Note that because of the time differences across countries, the actual date shifts).
- ALDinHE hosted on October 20/21, 2020.
- LSAC hosts December 8/9, 2020. See below for details!
- ScotHELD will host on February 23/24, 2021.
- AALL hots on April 13/14, 2021.
- ATLAANZ will host the fifth and final in June, 2021 (date TBD).
How can I take part in the symposium-over-time?
It is our hope to create a welcoming, participatory environment where members of all associations can come together not only for professional development but for collegial support and community. As such, discussion, questions, and interaction are welcomed and encouraged at all symposium events.
Every symposium session will be available synchronously via web-conferencing; links will be sent out to member listservs in the weeks prior. Where possible, sessions will also be recorded for viewing asynchronously. Presentations and other resources will be uploaded to this website.

Thriving in Action: A Flourishing Program That’s Flourished
- December 8, 2020 from 5-6 p.m. (EST) Find the time/date in your location.
- Zoom link: https://ryerson.zoom.us/j/99724199639
In this uplifting, experiential session, ICALLD participants will be introduced to Ryerson University’s Thriving in Action (TiA) program, a unique mind-body-heart-spirit intervention for struggling students. TiA’s curriculum blends Positive Psychology, CBT, mindfulness, somatic traditions, and holistic learning strategies. In TiA, we have created a semester-long, equity-driven, non-prescriptive, upstream, health-promoting, early alert, pre-probation, midstream transition & retention initiative.
Join Dr. Diana Brecher and Dr. Deena Kara Shaffer to
- learn more about TiA,
- explore the Canadian academic and wellbeing landscape,
- hear from other Canadian educators implementing TiA,
- expand your own repertoire of resilience practices, and
- walk away with a sense of community and hope.
