Sponsored by the American Association of Philosophy Teachers, the 17th IWCTP will be hosted by the University of Guelph in Ontario, Canada this coming August 6-10, 2008. Proposals for interactive workshops and panels related to teaching and learning philosophy at any educational level are welcome. We especially encourage workshops and panels that deal with innovative and successful teaching strategies; the application of philosophy to any area or issue; the connection of philosophy with other disciplines; the use of new technologies; new uses of "old" technologies; and the challenge of teaching in new, as well as in traditional, settings. Applicants are welcome to submit more than one proposal. Please visit http://www.philosophyteachers.org for proposal guidelines. The deadline for receipt of proposals is January 16, 2008.
