Call for Proposals: ALISE Annual 2019 - Works in Progress Showcase

Call for Works in Progress Showcase
Submission Deadline: May 15, 2019
Notification of Acceptance: June 15, 2019

Attendees of the conference at any stage of their career are invited to share current research and research-in-progress through posters presented at the Works in Progress Showcase.

A poster for the works-in-progress showcase should explicate the process of your research project or agenda. You may wish to highlight the particularly difficult, complex, or otherwise thorny aspects of your work. All approaches are welcomed, including any mix of qualitative, quantitative, mixed-methods, action, participatory, evaluation, design, development, or other methods. Participants will receive feedback in an informal setting, creating an excellent opportunity to identify collaborators and obtain feedback that may enrich research. It may also facilitate collaboration and development of new educational initiatives.

The posters for the Works in Progress Showcase are neither refereed nor judged. Space is limited, however, and acceptance will be based on space availability with priority given to posters that align with the conference theme, "Exploring Learning in a Global Information Context."
