Today we ask for your proposals —

When to submit your proposal:

Submit your proposal by August 1 to share your course or lab experience at the October 23-24 STEMPowered Faculty Symposium. Proposals are welcomed via the DCE system and may include a presentation or poster.

Thank you for proposing your course or lab!

How to submit your proposal:


We welcome proposals from faculty, both tenure and non-tenure track, from every STEM field across the State University System of Florida. Proposals are encouraged from faculty who have already amplified the engagement and learning in their classrooms and/or labs using some form of educational, interactive technology.

Presentations can be 10-20 minutes and highlight their course or lab innovation, its impact on learning outcomes, and the lessons learned in the process of integrating technology into STEM undergraduate courses and/or labs, including courses offered in the following modalities: face-to-face, hybrid, completely via digital pathways, and any options in between. Presentations must target a faculty, peer audience by discipline, be visually interesting but discrete in presentation length in order to ensure adequate time for faculty questions, dialogue, and discussion in each session.

Additionally, we welcome poster presentations featuring an innovative application of technology to the STEM undergraduate classroom, curriculum, or lab delivery method or design.

If you are interested in presenting at STEMPowered, please submit a proposal through our online portal. You will need to create an account by registering as a new user.
