New York State Foundations of Education Association
Call for Proposals
THEME: Enacting Collaborative Knowledge-Making in Educational Foundations
Ithaca, NY : March 30-31, 2017
The NYSFEA Advisory Board is pleased to announce the 2017 Annual Meeting of the New York State Foundations of Education Association. The meeting will provide an opportunity to dialogue with faculty, teachers and education professionals on current research in foundations of education. We seek proposals that highlight current and novel work across a wide range of perspectives and disciplines within educational foundations.
We envision the 41st annual meeting of NYSFEA as a space for foundations scholars to present scholarship that addresses urgent local, national, and global issues in educational foundations. We especially encourage in-process studies and papers that can help to inform a broad range of research and pedagogical trajectories. Our aim for this year is to cultivate a space where we dialogue with each other about our research, rather than a more traditional panel/question format. To this end, we encourage people to submit proposals for work they are in the process of thinking through and would like to gain feedback from colleagues in a workshop setting. What are the most important issues emerging from your work, and how might a group of fellow foundations scholars assist in engaging with the questions and ideas present that would be most beneficial to all of us?
Once again, we will also have a student poster session and encourage faculty to sponsor and assist students with responding to the call. Last year we had about seven undergraduate presenters who each said their experiences were fruitful.
The conference will be held at La Tourelle in “gorgeous/gorges” Ithaca, NY. Cost for the conference itself is $95 per participant, and reduced rate hotel rooms can be booked at La Tourelle Hotel for $99 per night. Participants wanting to stay Friday night on the reduced conference rate can do so with limited availability. Reservations can be made by contacting the hotel at 1-800-765-1492, and asking for the NYSFEA/NYS Foundations of Education Association room block. The conference registration fee includes dinner on Thursday evening (including a drink ticket) and breakfast and lunch on Friday. As always, the conference will be a lively and engaging event.
All proposals should be submitted in .pdf or .docx format to our email at firstname.lastname@example.org by December 15th. As they emerge, details will be updated on our website at nysfea.net. Please remember that NYSFEA has a long history of hosting artistic/alternative formats for presentations and we welcome creative submissions. Notifications will go out no later than January 15th.
