2021 conference image

July 11-13, 2021

The annual Conference on Engaged Learning showcases cutting-edge research on engaged learning. Each annual conference features multi-institutional research from a specific Center for Engaged Learning research seminar, invites research updates from past seminar participants and conference presenters, and encourages contributions from other scholars and practitioners studying engaged learning practices. 

We invite scholars interested in capstone experiences, writing beyond the university, and other engaged learning topics (see the theme categories listed in the full call for proposals) to join the culminating conversations of the 2018-2020 Research Seminar on Capstone Experiences and the 2019-2021 Research Seminar on Writing Beyond the University at the 2021 Conference on Engaged Learning at Elon University, July 11-13, 2021. We particularly encourage proposals that attend to diversity, inclusion, and equity within or across these engaged learning practices.

We anticipate hosting the conference as a hybrid event, with options to attend in-person on Elon’s campus or online. We will regularly assess whether a move to a fully online format is merited. We will post updates on this conference website.

Proposals will be accepted October 19, 2020-February 1, 2021. Read the call for proposals. (PDF version available here) | Submit a proposal
