The American Political Science Association invites political scientists and graduate students to submit proposals for the fourth annual Conference on Teaching and Learning in Political Science. This year’s meeting will take place in Charlotte, North Carolina in early February.
Using a working-group model, this meeting is a forum for interested individuals to develop models on teaching and learning as well as to discuss broad themes and values affecting political science education. The meeting will consist of 12 tracks constructed around such themes as:
Diversity and Inequality
Internationalizing the Curriculum
Simulations and Role Play
Teaching Research Methods
Within the working groups, presenters report on their studies as part of a sustained and continuing conversation and discussion. Individuals interested in applying to participate as presenters should submit a proposal on an idea or model for teaching and learning in political science as it relates to one of the themes listed above. We especially welcome papers that incorporate methods of assessment, the use of technology, and implications for diversity. All papers should reach outside personal experience to include literature reviews, evaluation, or other critical assessment. Proposals should be submitted online through MyAPSA (www.apsanet.org) by September 15, 2006.
