The Call for Proposals for AACTE’s 2024 Annual Meeting is now open. The conference theme,  “Ascending New Heights: Propelling the Profession into the Future” aligns the AACTE 2024 Annual Meeting with the association’s vision and mission to revolutionize education for all learners by elevating education and educator preparation through research, professional practice, advocacy, and collaboration. AACTE’s Annual Meeting brings together professionals from the preponderance of higher education institutions and their affiliates who are preparing educators for the workforce and influencing the field. This year’s conference will disseminate the latest research on educator recruitment, preparation and retention, illuminate new ideas for innovation, and elevate research and evidence-based practices to enhance teaching and learning.

  • Strand IV: Deepening the Impact of Education Research and Research to Practice
  • Strand V: Prioritizing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

AACTE encourages thought leaders from both the higher education and PK-12 communities, think tank organizations, and government and non-governmental entities to submit a proposal for consideration in the 2024 Annual Meeting program. Additionally, AACTE strongly encourages doctoral students pursuing an Ed.D. or Ph.D. to share their perspective on addressing current issues and providing innovative ways to approach that which has yet to be considered in education and educator preparation. Individuals from all educational fields are invited to bring their research and practice knowledge and expertise to the Annual Meeting. AACTE celebrates diverse voices to innovate, assess, and propel the profession into the future.
