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
