Call for Proposals, Reviewers for 2015 Annual Meeting: Advancing the Imperative

AACTE is now accepting proposals for the 2015 Annual Meeting in Atlanta, February 27 – March 1.

“As our profession embraces change, we must be mindful of forces that enrich as well as interfere with its development. National, state, and local efforts to improve multiple dimensions of the educational process provide the impetus for practitioners, researchers, and community leaders to re-examine challenges that address our purpose and our intentions. These challenges include strengthening professional preparation; making the moral commitment to educate all individuals to develop their abilities; attending to emerging organizational structures; harnessing technologies that support the teaching and learning processes; modeling inclusive practices; and engaging in research focused on impactful practices that nurture student learning.” – 2015 Call for Proposals

Proposals should address the theme “Advancing the Imperative” and fit into one of the four strands listed below:

Strand 1 – The Moral Imperative: Diversity and Inclusion
Strand 2 – The Profession Imperative: Marketing and Promoting the Profession
Strand 3 – The Curricular Imperative: Innovative Practices That Embrace the New Landscape of Teaching and Teacher Education
Strand 4 – The Research Imperative: Measuring the Impact of Teacher Education

    Thank you for your question. The formatting and scholarly requirements for a successful proposal can be found inside the Call for Proposals site. Once you begin a proposal, the requirements can be found on page two, included with the terms of agreement. The requirements are printable, so please feel free to do so. Also, please do remember that you can save your work in our Call for Proposals system, and then return to it at any time through May 30. The proposal does not need to be completed in one setting.

    Jian Wang’s question is a good one! I would like to know the proposal’s specific requirement BEFORE I write it and submit it. I read the content and strand description, but need to know word count, etc.
    I can’t begin the proposal until I know the requirements. Isn’t there a way to include that on the website before submission?

    Thank you for your feedback, Margarita. We are happy to make the process easier for you and others interested in submitting a proposal. The blog post above has now been updated to include both proposal and presentation expectations, as well as session type descriptions.

    You have not made this process easy. I appreciate your finally adding the links to the proposal submission above, but I still haven’t found guidelines for submitting the different types of proposals. Is it the case that all proposals simply have the 300-word limit (which I discovered by creating a fake submission, since I couldn’t find that information any other way). So, it’s the same proposal format and length whether one submits a symposium, a paper, an interactive dialogue, etc.? Is that correct?

    Thank you for your feedback, Tamara. To add further clarification to your remarks, the 300-word limit is for the abstract/summary description of your proposal only. Once you have completed that step, the next page will ask you to upload your full proposal (Word Document, PDF, etc.). The proposal format for the uploaded piece is the same for all session types, and is located in the section entitled “Proposal Format” within the Expectations for Presentations Guidelines. You can access that document, as you pointed out, in the links provided above.

    Thanks again, and please let me know if you have any additional questions.

      To correct the statement above, it should read “300 characters – word limit,” and not 300 words. The abstract should essentially be a couple of sentences to describe the content, which will be used in the program by AACTE (if the session is accepted). Thanks!

    On the pdf form above, the interactive dialogue session is 60 minutes, but within the form (click on the ?) it says that it is 75 minutes. Also, in the blurb on interactive dialogue, there is a requirement that we need to describe the format to be used and the time to be allocated to each component. However, on the “expectations for presentations” pdf, there is not mention of where this should be in the document. Thoughts?
