APSA is pleased to announce that the 2018 Teaching & Learning Conference will take place from February 2-4, 2018 in Baltimore, Maryland. The conference theme is “Teaching Politics as a Public Good: Citizenship and Civic Engagement in the Classroom.”
Please join us for a unique conference, which provides a highly interactive forum for scholars to share research and innovative tools for political science education. The conference focuses on promoting the scholarship of teaching and learning, equipping faculty with new techniques and resources for teaching, and enhancing the role of teaching in the discipline of political science. This year’s conference theme focuses on the public value of teaching political science and how studying politics can help students build tools for citizenship and civic discourse.
Proposals may be on any topic related to political science education, including pedagogy, innovative methods and techniques, assessment, experiential learning, simulations, curriculum development, mentoring, career preparation, and more. We invite proposals from all educators who teach political science and related subjects—university and college faculty, administrators, high school teachers, graduate students, research scholars, and others.
