    Call for Research Proposals

    Call for Innovative Poster Proposals

    Call for Learner Centered Teaching Presentations

    PLEASE NOTE: This is the second year of significant changes to the submission and acceptance processes!

    Submission: There will not be separate submissions for Research POSTERS. All research proposals will be submitted at the same time. There will be two formats for presentation of research:

    1. Paper Presentation
    2. Poster Presentation

    Upon acceptance for presentation, the lead author will be asked to provide their preferred format of presentation. All effort will be made to meet the preference, but there will be a need to have both paper and poster presentations. As a result, some will not receive their preference.

    Acceptance: You will receive acceptance/rejection notification as similar to previous years. Notification of acceptance will be followed with an email with more details of the acceptance and requesting your presentation preference. An additional communication will be made to indicate the final decision on type of presentation. Higher scoring abstracts will be given preference for paper presentations.

    Innovative Idea Posters: Nothing has changed, the call for posters is also attached to this email.

    Learner Centered Teaching Presentations: We have a new opportunity this year as we conduct the National Conference on Learner-Centered Teaching in conjunction with North Central AAAE.

    Roundtable Discussion: As in 2018, we will have roundtable discussions. Changing for 2019 is that there will be separate call for roundtable discussions. This call will be made 4 to 6 weeks prior to the conference.
