Call for Knowledge Without Boundaries Virtual Summit

Call for Knowledge Without Boundaries Virtual Summit

August 6th, 7th, 8th
Call for Proposals is Now Closed. Particpants will be notified of acceptance by July 15th.

The mission of Knowledge Without Boundaries (KWB) is to provide opportunities that enable University of Phoenix faculty, students, and alumni, to develop and achieve their professional research and scholarship goals and, through scholarly leadership, improve the performance of the organizations and communities they serve. The 2020 KWB Annual Research Symposium is a continuation of this mission and it upholds the intended vision to encourage the formation of communities of scholarship for University Phoenix faculty, students, and alumni.

Call for Proposals

We encourage submissions from all content areas based upon research, action research, and best practices around teaching. Proposals will be accepted from faculty, students, and alumni. Presentation proposals are being solicited under two tracks:
1. Research - Share the results of a qualitative and/or quantitative research.
2. Innovative Practice - Provide the opportunity for discussions of a project, program, or practice tool/strategy related research conducted by faculty/students/alumni.

Review Process

A committee of scholars and practitioners will blind-review all qualified entries. So that proposals can be blind reviewed, author-identifying information (name of the author, name of institution) should not appear in the proposal document or in the saved file name.

Session Structure

Each accepted presentation is 15 minutes in length and will be grouped, by topic, into a moderated session.
