Just a quick reminder that the deadline for proposing papers to the APSA’s Teaching and Learning Conference (TLC) is coming up on September 13th. The conference will be held in Long Beach, CA from 8-10 February, 2013. The call for papers can be found here.
The conference is organized according to 12 tracks and participants stay with their track the entire time. The tracks range widely, from Civic Education to Teaching Research Methods, Political Theory, Graduate Students, and Internationalizing the Curriculum. There are also workshops throughout the conference that are well worth attending.
It is a small conference, but well worth attending (in part due to its size, which encourages community-building). The editors of this blog are regular participants in the Simulations and Role Play Track; in fact, it is at the 2011 TLC where we met and the idea for the ALPS blog first germinated. I find that more than any other conference, I come away from TLC reflecting on my own professional work and eager to try out ideas shared by colleagues.
Plus, this year it’s in southern California in February. That can’t hurt.
