2014 Conference Information

Conference Theme: Dynamics

ICA 2015 Conference will be held
at the Hotel Winneshiek in Decorah, IA, September 18-19, 2015


Dynamics can be defined as the forces or properties that stimulate growth, development, or change within a system or process. This 2015 ICA conference theme challenges members to think about how we can stimulate growth and more dynamic learning in a changing environment as our students develop and grow as citizens of the world. There are many possibilities for exploring this theme including, but not limited to:

• How can we use new media, interactive technologies, and collaborative teaching opportunities to enhance the learning environment?
• How can we engage possibilities with each other and other universities/ colleges/high schools to increase the cultural experiences of students.
• How can we use twitter, Snapchat and other instant messaging in the classroom to meet students where they are to engage.
• What role does our research and/or service in the community impact the dynamics in the classroom?
• Are there ways to further engage students out-of-class to enhance their development as citizens?
• What teacher-student dynamics are necessary to engage students in learning?
• How can we move dynamic classroom projects into the community to enhance community engagement?
• Do we fight the mobile phone or use it to enhance classroom dynamics?
• Some students are not motivated to learn in the traditional classroom, how can we change these dynamics to enhance learning?
• How is higher education changing due to economic and societal factors? Do we change too or fight the change?

As we continue living in a changing world and society, the 2015 ICA conference is an opportunity for communication educators to come together and explore “dynamism” in a variety of contexts that impact our teaching and learning.

Hotel Information: The 2015 conference will be held September 18 & 19 at the Hotel Winneshiek in Decorah, Iowa.
