Call for Papers and Other Presentations
National Conference on Teaching Economics
and Research in Economic Education
June 1-3, 2011
Stanford University, Palo Alto, California
Sponsored by the AEA Committee on Economic Education
and the Journal of Economic Education
Submission deadline: November 1, 2010.
Proposals for presentations in concurrent sessions featuring papers, posters, panel discussions, or workshop activities will be considered on topics related to teaching economics at colleges and universities (undergraduate and graduate) and research on teaching and learning economics at any level (including pre-college).
- To Present Individual Papers: Submit an abstract of 250-500 words. Include complete contact information (name, affiliation, address, telephone number, and e-mail address) for each author, and designate a single contact author. Indicate which of the authors will be attending the conference, and whether those attending are willing to serve as discussants in other sessions. Preference will be given to abstracts describing research that is complete or at least well developed and nearly complete. Given the limited number of presentation slots, it may not be possible to accept some promising papers, but there might be space available for some of these papers in a poster session, described below. Therefore, please indicate whether you are willing to have the paper considered for inclusion in a poster session if it can not be presented in a paper session.
- To Present a Complete Session on a Particular Topic or Theme: A complete session should consist of three or four papers, with a discussant for each paper and a session chair. Provide a tentative session title. An abstract of 250-500 words is required for each paper. For each author, discussant, and the session chair provide complete contact information: name, affiliation, address, telephone number, and e-mail address. Designate one contact author for each paper. Also provide complete contact information for the session organizer.
- To Present a Poster: The CEE poster session at the annual AEA meetings is well attended and typically features 25-30 posters; we hope for similar responses at this conference. Instead of papers, presenters in this session will prepare large (visual) poster summaries of their work, which will be mounted in an exhibition area to allow presenters to talk directly with session participants. Although it is desirable to show that the teaching strategy enhances learning, quantifiable evidence is not required. Presenters should emphasize the originality of their strategy and provide sufficient information so that session participants can use the approach in their own classes. Posters marketing textbooks, commercial software, or similar materials will not be considered. Proposals are limited to two pages (double spaced). Provide complete contact information (name, affiliation, address, telephone number, e-mail address) for all authors, and designate one author as the contact author. Clearly indicate that the submission is intended for the poster session.
- Panel Discussions: These sessions are invited on current topics of interest to those teaching or doing research in economic education. Panelists should not present a current research paper, but should have prepared remarks on the topic. The session organizer may choose the precise session format, including the number of panelists and whether or not the session has discussants. Given time constraints, however, the session should not have more than 4 panelists, and time must be provided for questions and comments from the audience. Submit a short abstract (under 500 words) explaining why the topic is of interest, and an abstract of 250-500 words from each panelist summarizing their contribution. Indicate a session title and provide complete contact information for the session organizer, chair, each speaker, and each discussant (if discussants are included). Contact information for each participant should include their name, affiliation, address, telephone number, and e-mail address.
- To Present a Workshop Session: Workshop topics should relate to teaching economics at the college and university level (undergraduate or graduate). Submit an abstract of no more than 500 words describing the workshop you plan to organize, and provide a short (two-page) summary vita for the workshop leaders that covers their relevant experience on the workshop topic. Indicate a session title and provide complete contact information for the session organizer, chair, each speaker, and each discussant (if discussants are included). Contact information for each participant should include their name, affiliation, address, telephone number, and e-mail address.
There is no submission fee for proposals, but all presenters and non-presenters who attend the conference must register for the conference and pay the conference registration fee. Information on the registration fee is posted at http://www.vanderbilt.edu/AEA/AEACEE/Conference.
All submissions should be sent to Sam Allgood, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, by email (email@example.com) by November 1, 2010.
