2017 Annual Meeting Call for Proposals

ATE 2017 Annual Meeting

Online Call for Proposals
Orlando Caribe Royale
February 10-14, 2017

The deadline to submit proposals for the 2017 Annual Meeting has been extended to July 1, 2016.

To submit your proposal at the All Academic proposal submission site, please read the entire Call for Proposals that follows and then click here to go to the All Academic site.

The 2017 Annual Meeting of the Association of Teacher Educators will be held in Orlando, Florida at the Orlando Caribe Royale Hotel. The theme selected by President Shirley Lefever is Teacher Educators: Inspiring the Future, Honoring the Past.

Key phrases in the conference theme “Inspiring the Future; Honoring the Past” imply taking responsibility for raising the profile of the profession through recognition of successful practices, as well as individuals and organizations that strive to promote teaching. This theme and related strands are about telling our stories. Specific strands that build upon the concepts of Inspiring, Honoring, and Innovation are intended to promote pride in, ownership of and responsibility for our profession.

Teacher Educators: Inspiring the Future, Honoring the Past

Conference Strands:

Strand 1: Raising the profile of the profession: Telling our stories
Strand 2: Providing an historical perspective on teacher education: Programs, policies, practices and persons who have shaped teacher education.
Strand 3: Building the future of educator preparation through innovation in Teacher Education
Strand 4: Informing, Inspiring and Investigating the future of educator preparation for global impact.


The 2017 Summer Conference Planning Committee encourages formats that use multiple presenters, undergraduate and graduate students, classroom teachers, teacher educators at all levels, other school personnel, and policy makers.  The 2017 annual conference is an all multiple-paper type conference.  There will be no single session papers.

Proposals are due July 1, 2016

Thematic Sessions
60-80 minute sessions addressing the conference theme or other ATE interests are scheduled for February 12 - February 14. These sessions may include the application of research, position papers, descriptions of existing programs/practices, or innovations in teacher education. Proposals of the following types are encouraged.


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 60-80 minutes. Each paper will be given approximately 20-25 minutes to present, followed by a 10-15 minute question-and-answer session.

B. Roundtable Format:  Roundtables are informal sessions during which a presenter is 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 50 minutes.

C. Research Reports:  Two–three research papers will be grouped by related topics or themes in 60-80 minute sessions scheduled on either February 12-14.  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 January 15, 2017.

D. 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 will have 3-4 papers for the 80-minute session.  The session organizer also will provide the name and information of a Symposium Discussant.

E. Technology Share-A-Thon Format: These interactive technology sessions will be presented in the 21st Century Classroom. Proposals should highlight how technology will be used to enhance the learning of content while engaging 21st century learners. The planning committee will group three interactive sessions to run concurrently during each time slot. Each presentation will be given twice during the 60-minute session. Presentations should last approximately 20 minutes, and will be followed by 10-minutes of free exploration by attendees.  

F. 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. This is a prestigious, highly competitive strand highlighting the work of scholars who are new to academia. Emerging Scholar sessions are held February 12 and 13.

The purpose of the 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. While we strongly encourage research presentations, we will also consider other types of presentations such as conceptual analyses and program descriptions. Participants’ presentations will be grouped by topic and assigned an ATE Facilitator to coordinate and mentor during the session. Participants will also attend a reception that will allow them to engage with more experienced scholars in conversation around issues such as navigating the job market, thriving in the first two years, preparing articles for publication, or balancing teaching, research, and service.

Before you begin entering your proposal in the All Academic conference site, you should have all of the necessary information prepared and have enough time set aside to complete the submission process. If you pause your work in the middle of a submission and you haven't saved your work, your session will time out after 60 minutes, and you will lose your work. Being prepared before you start is important.

Proposal Format:
The information for your cover page will be entered into the All Academic site when you begin the process.  You do not need to upload a separate cover page.  This information will include Title, Type of session, 30-word description, Subject Descriptors, Teacher Educator Standards, List of Presenters with e-mail addresses, institution, etc.


After entering that information into the All Academic proposal submission site, you will need to upload your proposal.  Failure to upload a proposal will mean that your submission cannot be reviewed.  Because proposals are subject to blind review, do not include your name or the name of any other participant in this document.  This could cause your proposal to not be reviewed.
