Etats-Unis d'Amérique : announcement and call for proposals

THE SIXTEENTH INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP-CONFERENCE ON TEACHING PHILOSOPHY
Hosted by Washington and Jefferson College
Washington, PA, USA
August 2-6, 2006

Workshop and panel proposals related to teaching and learning philosophy at any educational level are welcome. We especially encourage interactive workshops and panels that deal with innovative and successful teaching strategies, the application of philosophy to any area or issue, the connection of philosophy with other disciplines, the use of new technologies, and the challenge of teaching in new, as well as in traditional, settings. Applicants are welcome to submit more than one proposal.

PROPOSAL GUIDELINES

Proposals must be received by January 16, 2006.

Proposals should describe, in 1-3 pages, what the presentation will cover, what it seeks to achieve, and what participants will do or experience during the session. Proposals should also list any materials or handouts to be provided, as well as any special equipment to be used. To facilitate the anonymous review process, do not include your name or any identifying information in the body of your proposal.

In addition to your proposal, please supply a separate information sheet that includes each presenter's name, institutional affiliation (if any), and contact information (phone number, email address, and postal address), as well as the title of the proposed presentation, the length of the presentation (60 or 90 minutes), the format of the presentation (workshop, panel, discussion, or demonstration), a list of equipment needed, and a brief abstract (100-200 words) for use in the printed conference program.

Proposals may be submitted via email, postal mail, or fax. Send email submissions to Andrew Carpenter at acarpenter@kaplan.edu with "AAPT Proposal" in the subject line of your message. Attachments must be in MS Word or text format, and should be labeled with your name (for example: Jane_Doe_Info_Sheet.doc or John_Doe_Proposal.txt).
