THEME

In the spirit of promoting self-driven, collaborative, meaningful, and sustainable professional development, CLLC 2017 focuses on the professional identities, communities, beliefs, and practices of educators and how they can all be harnessed to enhance and advance the lifelong learning we recognize as the ideal meaning of the phrase “teacher education.”

Our goal is to involve pre- and in-service teachers, teacher educators, administrators, researchers, and other professionals at all stages of their careers in a multidirectional sharing of expertise and experiences that will contribute to future exploratory practice and professional growth.

CALL FOR PROPOSALS

Proposals for paper and poster presentations, practice-oriented sessions and workshops, colloquia, and panel discussions are invited in areas related to the themes of educators' professional identities, communities, beliefs, and practices until December 5, 2016.

Presentation topics need not address the topic of teacher education directly; we welcome proposals on anything that educators themselves would consider worthwhile for enhancing their own and their colleagues’ professional development and daily practices.
