Call for Education (formerly INFORM-ED) Cluster Sessions at INFORMS 2018


INFORMS Committee on Teaching and Learning (formerly INFORM-ED) is seeking proposals for its cluster of sessions at the 2018 Annual Meeting in Phoenix on OR/MS/Analytics-related education themes.  The mission of INFORMS Committee on Teaching and Learning is to promote discussion and interaction among individuals with interest in the teaching of OR/MS/Analytics in higher education.  Possible session topics include:

  • Analytics curricula in mathematics, engineering, and business programs
  • Developing productive mentoring relationships
  • Tips for using new analytics software
  • Best practices for documenting teaching performance
  • New challenges in today's educational environment
  • Aligning learning objectives, assessment, and course materials
  • Learning analytics and educational data mining

If you are interested in organizing a session or presenting in this cluster, please contact me at by March 11th with a suggested title and brief description.  Proposals for sessions jointly sponsored by other INFORMS communities are also welcome.  All speaker information is due by May 2nd and abstracts must be submitted by May 15th.
