PROPOSALS

Proposals are of two types: refereed and non-refereed. Refereed proposals may include individual and / or multiple authored papers and symposia. Accepted refereed papers will be included in conference proceedings. Non-refereed proposals may consist of a paper, symposium, or workshop.

TYPES OF SESSIONS

  1. Multiple-paper sessions (90 minutes)

Multiple-paper sessions are intended to report summaries of ongoing or final research results, to provide a brief analysis of issues of policy and practice, or to report an initiative in teacher education. There will be 3 paper presentations for each parallel session. Each presenter will be given 20 minutes of presentation time with 10 minutes for Q & A per session.

  1. Multiple-presenter symposium (120 minutes)

Symposium provides an opportunity to examine specific research issues, problems, or topics from a variety of perspectives. Symposium organizers should solicit proposals and submit them together, along with the name of a symposium chairperson. Session organizers are expected to chair the session and to facilitate discussion. The proposal should include the purpose and the rationale of the session, a description of each presentation and a statement regarding audience involvement. Symposia may also use a panel discussion format.

  1. Workshops (60 - 90 minutes)

Workshops are intended to be interactive sessions where researchers, practitioners or policymakers present a theme allowing adequate time for reflective discussion and interaction. Learning-by-doing occupies most of the session, and any presentations are brief. The proposal should include the purpose and the rationale of the session, a description of the presentation, and a statement regarding audience involvement.
