There will be two presentation formats: paper presentations and workshops. Papers will be presented in one of three track working groups:
• Civic Engagement Education
• Technology and Innovative Pedagogy in the Classroom
Paper proposals are welcome on a variety of topics, including innovative pedagogical methods and techniques, assessment, experiential learning, simulations, curriculum development, deliberation in the physical classroom and online, the impact and influence of diversity and difference(s) on inclusive instruction, and more. Workshops should be designed to be highly interactive and provide hands-on experience, demonstrating a learning tool or technique which participants could immediately implement in the classroom. Workshops are 90 minutes and examples include: creating campus-wide civic engagement initiatives, using in-class debate to enhance student learning, and techniques for discussing difficult issues in the classroom. Accepted papers will be presented in a working group format similar to the APSA Teaching and Learning Conference.
We invite proposals from all educators who teach political science and related subjects—university and college faculty, administrators, high school teachers, graduate students, research scholars, and others. All participants will need to register for the 2019 APSA Annual Meeting in order to attend.
While we encourage participants to stay for the full day’s events, TLC at APSA participants may also drop in for events, as their schedule allows. The 2019 Submissions System is open! The deadline for proposals is Tuesday, January 15, 2019.
