ASC Webinar Archives: 2018 Using Your Skills for Social Change Conference

2018 Using Your Skills for Social Change Virtual Conference

lanyardThank you to all those who attended our conference on October 4, 2018. We are working on editing the conference presentations and will have them available on our YouTube channel soon.

The Walden University Academic Skills Center and Center for Social Change are no longer accepting proposals for the 2018 Using your Skills for Social Change Conference. All proposals will be reviewed, and acceptance decisions for the four presentation slots will be emailed by Friday, June 29, 2018.


This online conference will also include a Social Change Networking Hour hosted by Walden’s Career Services Center. The conference will take place on October 4, 2018.

  • Help students identify specific academic skills to use in enacting social change
  • Provide opportunity for Walden students to network with each other and with faculty members
  • Give students experience attending a conference
  • Give presenting students opportunity to gain experience presenting at a conference 

Four presentation slots are available for joint student/faculty presentations. Walden University students and faculty are invited to submit proposals to co-present on how students (graduate or undergraduate level) have used skills they acquired in their Walden degree program to enact social change in their academic or professional community. If you are interested in this presentation opportunity, please discuss it with your Walden faculty. Your faculty co-presenter must approve your proposal before you submit it for consideration.

Presentations will be 30-45 minutes long, with half of that time open for discussion and questions moderated by Dr. Bill Schulz, Founding Director of the Walden Center for Social Change. Each presentation must include both a current, active Walden student in good academic standing and a current Walden faculty member who will co-present together.


Submission does not guarantee acceptance. To use our online form, please have the following information ready:

  • Name, Walden University e-mail address, and college or center affiliation for both the student and the faculty member who will co-present the session (presentations may include one additional student or faculty member, for up to three presenters in total)
  • Title of proposed session
  • Abstract for proposed session (100 words maximum)
  • Two learning outcomes (e.g., what do you want the participants to learn and/or achieve in this session?). Please use action verbs such as describe, analyze, explain, evaluate, or apply in your outcomes.
  • Explanation of learning activities (e.g., How will your session be organized?). List the activities in order, and assign each activity a time period. Plan to include interactive and/or collaborative activities to maximize learning and participation.
