CONFERENCE THEME: “Teaching Democratic Principles through Political Science Education”


The third Teaching and Learning Conference at APSA will take place Saturday, September 12, 2020 in San Francisco, CA as part of the
2020 APSA Annual Meeting. This full-day event seeks to promote the scholarship of teaching and learning, equip faculty with new techniques and resources for teaching, and enhance the role of teaching in the discipline of political science. TLC at APSA provides a highly interactive forum for scholars to share innovative tools for political science education and research on the scholarship of teaching and learning. 

The 2020 submissions system for paper and workshop proposals is now closed. For those interested in participating in the new Breakout Sessions, the submission system is open!

Breakout Sessions - New!

The TLC at APSA Program Committee co-chairs are pleased to announce a Call for Proposals for a new presentation format at the 2020 TLC at APSA. These “Breakout Sessions” will take place during lunch on Saturday, September 12, 2020, and are a chance to present an idea in development for a future workshop or paper. This brief, 30 minute session during lunch is designed to help participants gauge how relevant the topic is to conference attendees, receive feedback from conference attendees on the topic, idea, or methodological approach, brainstorm ideas with peers, and offer casual networking opportunities with potential for future research partnerships. We encourage applications from graduate students and early career faculty from a range of institutions, including universities and 2- and 4-year colleges.

Individuals interested in submitting a workshop or paper idea to the TLC at APSA must submit Breakout Sessions here.
