APSA Teaching and Learning Conference

Thank you for your interest in the APSA Teaching and Learning Conference!

The APSA Council has voted to hold the conference every two years, rather than on an annual basis. The next stand-alone conference is scheduled to take place in winter 2020.


2019 Joint International Teaching and Learning Conference

The 2019 Joint TLC is a collaboration between APSA, the Political Studies Association (PSA), the British International Studies Association (BISA), and the European Consortium for Political Research (ECPR). It will take place in Brighton, England from June 17-19, 2019. The conference aims to provide a forum in which political science educators from different countries and contexts can come together to explore these challenges and share their experiences and teaching practices.
