Call for Proposals for Paper Sessions

Note: TCPEA's Call for Proposals for Paper Sessions is not related to TASA's Midwinter Conference Session Application system. To be considered to present at the TCPEA Conference within a Conference, please submit a proposal as outlined (below).

General Proposal Guidelines

Both members and non-members of TCPEA may submit proposals for consideration. Only original work that has not been previously: (a) published, (b) presented at TCPEA/TASA Midwinter Conference, and/or (c) presented at another professional meeting is eligible for consideration. If a portion of the work has been previously presented, but not published, and the new original contribution is substantial, the work is eligible for consideration, but only if the prior work is explicitly acknowledged.

Paper sessions are organized around such topic areas as:

  • Achievement Gap
  • Culturally Relevant Teaching
  • Curriculum and Instruction
  • Democracy in Education
  • Diversity
  • Higher Education
  • Instruction, Learning, and Cognition
  • Leadership
  • Mentoring
  • Policy & Politics
  • Principal Preparation Program Evaluation
  • Professional Development
  • Social Justice
  • Special Populations and Counseling
  • Teachers and Teacher Education
  • Technology (program and course-delivery methods)

Subsequently, selected presenter(s) will be provided between 10-12 minutes to present papers in summary fashion. To propose a paper for a paper session, author(s) should prepare a summary including:

(a) Title of the paper/presentation;
(b) Statement of the problem;
(c) Perspective(s) or theoretical framework;
(d) Methods and procedures;
(e) Results and conclusions, and potential implications; and
(e) Educational or scientific importance of the study

Additionally, on a separate sheet from the summary information requested (above), please include as a first page the following:

  1. Title of presentation,
  2. Brief description of the work (a 50 word or less summary),
  3. Presenter's/presenters' information, identifying the main presenter (the person who will receive email correspondence) first & last name, professional title, college/district/company name, email address and phone number; as well as this same information for additional presenters.

Proposals that do not include these components will not be reviewed. When possible, we encourage professors to present with a practitioner in the field. Where possible, sessions will be organized around themes to promote discussion and audience interaction.
