CONFERENCE THEME: Teaching Politics as a Public Good: Citizenship and Civic Engagement in the Classroom
The 15th Annual Teaching and Learning Conference will take place February 2-4, 2018. This year’s conference theme focuses on the public value of teaching political science and how studying politics can help students build tools for citizenship and civic discourse.
Proposals may be on any topic related to political science education, including pedagogy, innovative methods and techniques, assessment, experiential learning, simulations, curriculum development, mentoring, career preparation, and more.
There are two formats options for the 2018 Teaching and Learning Conference: paper presentations and workshops. All papers are presented in a collaborative environment, with materials shared in advance and participants serving as discussants for each other’s work. Some papers will be part of a larger working group track; others will be independent of any particular track theme and organized into panels or roundtable discussions. Workshops are designed to be highly interactive and provide hands-on experience, demonstrating a learning tool or technique which participants could immediately implement in the classroom.
**Proposals are due September 24, 2017.**
