This is a call for abstracts for the Roundtable session: "High-impact practices for the 21st century engaged learner" at the upcoming Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA), Baltimore, Maryland, 23-26 March 2017.

High-impact practices go beyond helping students learn content and improve as learners: they help them to apply their learning in their personal and professional lives in a meaningful way. Service or community-based learning, undergraduate research, study-abroad experiences, project-based assignments, learning communities and collaborative learning, reflective and integrated learning are only a few examples of such practices. In this session, participants will engage in a discussion on the benefits, challenges, pitfalls and outcomes of such educational contexts as these were implemented in their own courses or in other (institutional) initiatives. Please submit 250 word abstracts to session proposal #16115 through the following link:  http://www.buffalo.edu/nemla/convention/callforpapers/submit.html
