Theme:  The Diversity of IBL

Registration Conference Registration is done this year within your MathFest registration. There is a fee of $25 which includes heavy hors d'oeuvres.

Call for Contributed Posters: The program committee invites abstracts for posters at the mini-conference Constructing the Future of IBL: The Past 20 Years and the Next 20 Years. We are especially interested in presentations that fit with this year's "The Diversity of IBL" theme to highlight variation within the IBL community now and across time, either in terms of classroom practices or in terms of pursuing inclusive equity for students and instructors. New this year, we also encourage that poster presentations include a dynamic element such as a piece of technology used for IBL, a class video clip, or a physical manipulative used in the classroom.

We welcome proposals concerning any facet of IBL teaching and learning, though though preference will be given to posters with a dynamic element.
