The School of Education at Virginia International University
invites your proposals for the 2017 Conference on Language, Learning, and Culture
Enhancing and Advancing Teacher Education:
Professional Identities, Communities, Beliefs, and Practices
to be held April 7-8, 2017 on VIU’s campus in Fairfax, VA
In the spirit of promoting self-driven, collaborative, meaningful, and sustainable professional development, CLLC 2017 focuses on the professional identities, communities, beliefs, and practices of educators and how they can all be harnessed to enhance and advance the lifelong learning we recognize as the ideal meaning of the phrase “teacher education.”
Our goal is to involve pre- and in-service teachers, teacher educators, administrators, researchers, and other professionals at all stages of their careers in a multidirectional sharing of expertise and experiences that will contribute to future exploratory practice and professional growth.
Presentation topics need not address the topic of teacher education directly; we welcome proposals on anything that educators themselves would consider worthwhile for enhancing their own and their colleagues’ professional development and daily practices.
Proposals for paper and poster presentations, practice-oriented sessions and workshops, colloquia, and panel discussions are invited in areas related to the themes of educators' professional identities, communities, beliefs, and practices.
To submit a proposal, click on the "submit a proposal" button below. As a proposal submitter, you will need to create an account before submitting your proposal. See our page on the proposal submission and evaluation process for information on how to create an account, write an effective proposal, submit your proposal, and more.
*Submissions received via email, fax, or mail will not be considered.
Abstracts must be anonymous, written in English, and submitted through the CLLC website. Submissions received via email, fax, or mail will not be considered.
In addition to the usual components of an abstract (e.g., review of previous research, goals, rationale, participants, methods, results, conclusions, implications), each proposal should indicate the relevance of the presentation to the conference theme and explicitly outline 3-5 intended outcomes for the audience. What will attendees understand and/or be able to do by the completion of the session?
For workshops, posters, and paper presentations, abstracts should be no more than 400 words in length. For a colloquium or panel discussion, the organizer should submit a single abstract on behalf of the group, devoting 300 words to the overall theme and intended outcomes and 200 words to each paper or panelist included.
All submissions should include a 50-word summary of each presentation for inclusion in the conference program. Titles of presentations should be no more than 15 words.
Each presenter should be listed as the first author on no more than one presentation. Student presentations are especially encouraged.
The organizers have provided some information on how to write an effective proposal. Please consult these suggestions early and often while preparing your proposal.
CLLC proposal submitters should consult the proposal review rubric for information on how proposals will be scored by reviewers. Click here for more details.
