Cal for Proposals: Service-Learning in Teacher Education

Posted by on January 02, 2012

The International Center for Service-Learning in Teacher Education (ICSLTE) is pleased to announce its call for proposals for the third international conference Conversations that Matter: Research, Policy, and Practice. The conference will be held June 21-23, 2012 at Duke University.

We seek proposals that address work for the common good through academic learning and active civic engagement. We seek presenters who envision service-learning as a necessary component of teacher education, both pre-service (educating new teachers) and in-service (ongoing professional development for practicing employed teachers). We will select proposals that provide research-based insights, reflect critically on issues of policy and practice, and raise important questions for international discussion.

Proposals must be submitted by 9pm, PST January 6, 2012 and will be reviewed by an international committee of teacher educators, classroom teachers, and students.  Notification of acceptance will be on or before February 10, 2012.

The Journal of Research on Service-Learning in Teacher Education, a new peer-reviewed journal designed to enhance the quality of research and practice regarding the use of service-learning in teacher education,  will publish a special issue highlighting papers presented at the June 2012 conference. Publication in this issue of the journal is open only to authors who presented at the conference. All presenters at this International conference are invited to submit manuscripts for consideration, based upon their conference presentations. Submissions are due no later than September 1, 2012.  Details regarding submissions will be available on the conference web site March 1, 2012.

For information regarding proposal submission or general questions about the conference, contact Kathy Sikes, Executive Administrative Director,
