The 2023 Critical Questions in Education Conference will be held in San Diego, California, February 27—March 1, 2023 at the Westgate Hotel. The deadline for submitting proposals is December 12, 2022.
Participants are invited to explore four conversation themes:
- Cleaning out the closet of educational ideas: What to keep, and what to throw away – an examination of educational ideas and favorite educational phrases—like “Meet students where they are”—that might be misleading or destructive
- Letters to teachers—and others who need to hear from us – an invitation for you to write an education-related letter—or “rant,” or poem, or eulogy, or something else—to whomever you think most needs it
- Students: Finishing their worksheets or working in the school garden?: an invitation to explore the use of school gardens, work in neighborhood parks, or other experiential learning activities in a time where test prep seems to dominate classrooms
- Changing the narrative about teaching: With continuing pressure from all manner of sources, how are teachers being viewed, and how do they see themselves and the tasks of learning and teaching? Does something need to change? (This is a continuing Academy conversation.)
An “Open topic” category will be offered for those who want to enjoy these discussions but present on a different education-related topic. A Call for Chapters on the first and second of these topics will be issued for two edited collections with Myers Education Press as part of the Academy’s book series.
The CQiE Conference offers deliberate opportunities for participants to talk, listen, and learn from one another—and to think about how they might change or develop their thinking about teaching and/or teacher education as a consequence of what they learn from others. The conference cost is $295 ($135 for graduate students and $70 for undergraduate students). This price includes a free book (a $43 value) from the Academy Book Series on Education, part of Myers Education Press. Please see the file below for more details about submitting a proposal.
