CALL FOR PROPOSALS
Building Learning Communities:
Multiple Perspectives through Culture and Interactions
The IATE Planning Committee invites proposals pertaining to the 2017 conference theme, “Building Learning Communities: Multiple Perspectives through Culture and Interactions”. Participants are encouraged to report on ways in which research and practice inform our practices as educators, both in terms of what we do and how we study our work. It is critical that as a profession we define our knowledge base and the impact of our research on P-12 students and teachers. This is an excellent opportunity for each of us to inform the educational community of our work.
Types of Sessions/Presentations:
- Paper Presentations - Single paper presentations provide an opportunity for authors to share their work. Typically, presentations last 30-35 minutes with 5-10 minutes for discussion.
- Panel Presentations - Multiple presenters provide a variety of perspectives on an issue related to the conference theme and are organized and chaired by one of the presenters. Typically, each individual presentation lasts 10 minutes with 5-10 minutes for discussion.
- Poster Presentations - Poster sessions combine the graphic display of materials with the opportunity for individualized, informal discussion of the research. All poster presentations will be organized in a single area at a single time for conference participants to be able to visit as many as possible. This is a wonderful way for preservice teachers (undergraduate & graduate), faculty members, and others to informally share their work.
