Call for Papers
CURRENTLY BEING ACCEPTED
We seek papers and posters for the
sessions described below:
Research into Student Learning
We seek presentations focusing on assessment of student learning
of specific content areas across the science and mathematics
disciplines. Papers and posters can also address the implication
of this research on classroom pedagogy.
Methods of Conducting Research
into Student Learning
This session focuses on sharing methodologies that have led to
meaningful findings about how students learn science and mathematics
at both the secondary and post-secondary levels. This session
presents a unique opportunity for teachers and researchers from
different disciplines to see what issues drive the quest to understand
how students learn in their classes.
Assessing Research-based Curriculum
and Course Reform
Teachers are being introduced to new science and mathematics
instructional strategies that are based on research into student
learning. We seek papers and posters that both introduce these
research-based practices and assess their effectiveness.
Content and Research-based Graduate
Programs for Teachers
This session is seeking models for preparing pre-service and
in-service teachers to teach using reform-based instruction.
Papers and posters can address: What are these models? Do programs
exist that teach content to pre-service and in-service teachers
in the way they will teach in the classroom? How have schools
and universities worked together to establish infrastructure
to sustain reform?
Strategies for Enhancing Participation
Under-represented Groups in Science and Mathematics
We seek papers and posters that address issues of diversity in
science and mathematics education. Presenters will identify practices
to help student groups that have not traditionally been well
represented in these fields perform better and continue taking
more advanced classes.
