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:

1. How can we use new media, interactive technologies, and collaborative teaching opportunities to enhance the learning environment?
2. How can we engage possibilities with each other and other universities/ colleges/high schools to increase the cultural experiences of students?
3. How can we use twitter, Snapchat and other instant messaging in the classroom to meet students where they are to engage?
4. What role does our research and/or service in the community impact the dynamics in the classroom?
5. Are there ways to further engage students out-of-class to enhance their development as citizens?
6. What teacher-student dynamics are necessary to engage students in learning?
7. How can we move dynamic classroom projects into the community to enhance community engagement?
8. Do we fight the mobile phone or use it to enhance classroom dynamics?
9. Some students are not motivated to learn in the traditional classroom, how can we change these dynamics to enhance learning?
10. 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.
