TLS Graduate Colloquy
We are excited to announce the 32nd annual Teaching, Learning, & Sociocultural Studies (TLS) Graduate Student Colloquy, at the University of Arizona, College of Education. The TLS Graduate Student Colloquy is a one-day event to be held on Thursday, February 21, 2019. The colloquy is an opportunity for graduate students from across departments and programs working on education-related topics to share their research with colleagues and visiting scholars.
This year’s theme is Community-based learning.
Our Keynote speaker is Dr. Angela Calabrese Barton, Professor in the Department of Teacher Education at Michigan State University. Her research is grounded in the intersections of teaching and learning science with an emphasis on equity and social justice. Her recent work takes place within three interrelated strands: 1) working within the intersection of formal/informal education in support of understanding and designing new possibilities for equitably consequential teaching and learning; 2) designing teaching learning tools and experiences that promote more expansive learning outcomes, such as critical agency, identity work, and social transformation (as grounded within expanding disciplinary expertise); and 3) methodologies for embracing authentic “research + practice” work that attends to practitioner, youth, and community member voices, and critically engages the goals of equity and justice. Calabrese Barton is a WT Grant Distinguished Fellow, a Fellow of the American Education Research Association, and also the former co-Editor of the Journal of Research in Science Teaching. Some of her publications appear in Educational Researcher, the American Educational Research Journal, Journal of Teacher Education, Teachers College Record, the Journal of Research in Science Teaching, Science Education, and the Journal of the Learning Sciences.
Submit an Abstract to the 2019 TLS Graduate Colloquy (February 21, 2019)
Along with our Keynote presentation, there will be opportunities for graduate students to present papers and/or posters. We are accepting proposals for individual and group papers, panels, and posters. We invite paper proposal submissions that focus on, but are not limited to:
• Interdisciplinary approaches to research on learning in/with/by/for communities.
• Theorizing the unit of analysis for learning.
• Theory and praxis of "community” or “communities.”
• Policies and/or practices that promote community involvement in education.
• Research on networks of interdependent communities in education.
Papers that specifically relate to our theme of community-based learning will be presented during our concurrent sessions. Research topics that are not related to our theme can be submitted as poster proposals for the poster session. The TLS Department will print posters at no cost to the presenters. More information on this process will be given upon approval.
Abstracts should be no more than 150 words. Please submit an abstract and the required information, before December 14th, 2018 online through the following link: https://tinyurl.com/yaa9l68r
We look forward to seeing everyone there!
