The 2021 Annual Meeting Planning Committee encourages sessions that include multiple presenters, undergraduate and graduate students, classroom teachers, teacher educators at all levels, other school personnel, and policy makers. These sessions may include the application of research, position papers, descriptions of existing programs/practices, or innovation in teacher education. Various types of sessions addressing the conference theme or other ATE interests are scheduled throughout the conference.

All proposals are blind, peer-reviewed.

Thematic Sessions (scheduled for February 15-17):

 

Sixty to Eighty-minute sessions address the conference theme or other ATE interests. The

sessions may include the application of research, position papers, descriptions of existing

programs/practices, or innovation in teacher education. Proposals of the following types are encouraged. The 2021 Annual Meeting is an all multiple-paper conference. There will be

no single paper sessions.

 A. Multiple Paper Format:  This type of thematic session provides an opportunity for  authors to present a synopsis of their work. The planning committee will group two-three papers of a related topic or theme for 60 to 80 minutes. Each paper will be given approximately 20 to 25 minutes to present, followed by a 10 to 15-minute question-and-answer session.

B. Roundtable Format:  Roundtables are informal sessions during which
presenters are seated at a table to discuss works-in-progress that may not be ready for formal presentation. Tables are numbered to allow conference attendees to easily identify an individual presenter’s session. Each discussion lasts 60 minutes.

C.  Symposium: A symposium provides an opportunity to examine specific research issues, problems, or topics from a variety of perspectives. Symposia may use a panel discussion format targeted at a clearly delineated research issue or idea.  Symposium submissions may have 3 - 4 papers for the 60 to 90-minute session.  The session organizer will provide the name and information of a Symposium Discussant.

D. Research Sessions:  Two – three research papers will be grouped by related topics or themes in 60 to 80-minute sessions. 
Research papers are presented in approximately 15 to 20-minute time segments. A Discussant will provide a response at the conclusion of the presentations.  If a proposal is accepted, a written paper or research report MUST be submitted to the Discussant by February 1, 2021.

E. Emerging Scholars Series:  Graduate students and those who have graduated within the last two years are encouraged to apply to participate in the Association of Teacher Educators’ Emerging Scholars Series. The purpose of this series is to foster a community of emerging scholars within ATE and to create a support network for recent graduates and soon-to-be graduates. This is a prestigious, highly competitive strand that highlights the work of scholars who are new to academia.  Emerging Scholar sessions are held February 15 and 16.


While we strongly encourage research presentations, we will also consider other types of presentations such as conceptual analyses and program descriptions. Research must be completed prior to the submission date for proposals. Accepted presentations will be grouped by topic and assigned an ATE Facilitator to coordinate and mentor authors during the session.  Participants will also attend a workshop that will allow them to engage with more experienced scholars around issues such as navigating the job market, thriving in the first two years, preparing manuscripts for publication, or balancing teaching, research, and service.
