Proposals for interactive workshops related to teaching and learning philosophy at any educational level are welcome. We especially encourage creative approaches to workshops or or panels on:
  • innovative and successful teaching strategies
  • professional issues connected to teaching
  • how work in other disciplines can improve the teaching of philosophy
  • engaging students outside the classroom
  • innovative uses of instructional technologies
  • the challenge of teaching in new settings
  • methods to improve student learning

Each submission must contain, as an attachment, a proposal prepared for anonymous review, in Word (.doc or .docx), PDF (.pdf), or WordPerfect (.wpd) format. Please label attachments with your name (e.g., ‘Doe-Proposal.doc’). Contact information for each presenter, including institutional affiliations, may be included in the email or in a separate cover sheet. Please include a 100-200 word abstract suitable for the conference program.
