CFP: Teaching Hub Posters @2018 APA Eastern
Call for Proposals
The AAPT/APA Teaching Hub
Poster Session: SoTL Research by Philosophy Teachers
and Independent Research by Undergraduates in Philosophy
Eastern Division APA meeting
January 3-6, 2018
The American Association of Philosophy Teachers (AAPT) and the APA Committee on the Teaching of Philosophy invite proposals for a poster session at the Eastern Division Meeting of the American Philosophical Association in Savannah, Georgia, January 3-6, 2018.
This session is part of the Teaching Hub organized by the AAPT and the APA Committee on the Teaching of Philosophy. The Teaching Hub is a collaborative meeting space that hosts a series of informative programs about the teaching of philosophy at divisional meetings of the APA. (In 2018 there will be a Teaching Hub at the Eastern and Pacific Division meetings.)
We invite proposals for one of two different kinds of posters that will be featured at the session:
- Posters by undergraduate students featuring the topic of an honors thesis, summer research project, or other independent research project
- Posters by faculty or graduate students on research on the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL)
Submissions: Abstracts of no longer than 300 words, formatted for anonymous review (please put identifying information on a separate page), should be sent to: email@example.com no later than September 15, 2017.
Deadline for Proposals: September 15, 2017.
Note: Please be aware that in order to participate in this session, membership in the American Philosophical Association is required, and registration for the APA Eastern Division meeting may also be required. Please see the following web pages for more information:
- APA membership rates: http://www.apaonline.org/?page=memberinfo
- APA Eastern meeting registration: http://www.apaonline.org/group/eastern (information about the 2018 meeting is not yet available, but information about past meetings is linked there)
In addition, all participants in the session will need to pay for their travel and lodging. As this might be difficult for undergraduate students, we particularly encourage undergrads who live relatively close to Savannah, Georgia to submit poster proposals. In addition, some universities have funding opportunities for undergraduate research, so undergrads are encouraged to see if that is the case at their institutions.
The AAPT/APA Teaching Hub is a set of sessions about teaching philosophy held at various divisional meetings of the APA, emphasizing inclusive and collegial interactions. The Teaching Hub coordinates conversations about the teaching of philosophy at all levels, pre-college through graduate school.
