24 Nov 2015 NYSFEA Conference – Is Teacher Education Worth Fighting For? Now Accepting Proposals!
The New York State Foundations of Education Association (NYSFEA) is pleased to announce our 2015 conference entitled: “Is Teacher Education Worth Fighting For?” The conference will be held at Colgate University in Hamilton, N.Y on Friday, March 27th and Saturday, March 28th. Building on the momentum generated at last year’s conference, we will focus our attention more directly on what concerns those of us in the academy most personally: the health and survival of our teacher education programs.
NYSFEA, a 45-year-old organization with a history of commitment to the scholarship and lived experience of politics, history, and philosophy of public education, wants to support the growing movement to stop the corporate reform movement, as well as offer real alternatives to the current agenda. Add your voice to the growing chorus of dissent as we recommit to quality public education for all.
CALL FOR PROPOSALS:
All proposal requirements and the submission form can be found here. An email announcement will go out on December 1st with a link to the website and detailed submission procedures.
Please note as you are preparing your proposals that NYSFEA has a long history of hosting artistic/alternative formats for presentations and we welcome creative submissions.
Proposals that directly address the conference theme will have preference, but we welcome a wide array of proposals that address social justice concerns about education from a variety of methodological perspectives. NYSFEA uses a blind review process.
PROPOSALS ARE DUE BY FEBRUARY 1. NOTIFICATIONS WILL SENT OUT NO LATER THAN FEBRUARY 15.
Please contact the NYSFEA secretary, Dr. Rebecca Johnson (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions or concerns.
