    •    how work in other disciplines can improve the teaching of philosophy
    •    engaging students outside the classroom
    •    innovative uses of instructional technologies
    •    the challenge of teaching in new settings
    •    methods to improve student learning

Each submission must contain, as an attachment, a proposal prepared for anonymous review, in Word (.doc or .docx), PDF (.pdf), or WordPerfect (.wpd) format.  Please label attachments with your name (e.g., 'Doe-Proposal.doc').  Contact information for each presenter, including institutional affiliations, may be included in the email or in a separate cover sheet.  Please include a 100-200 word abstract suitable for the conference program.

Proposals should include:
    •    the session title

    •    a one-to-three page description of what the session seeks to achieve, including an account of what participants will do during the session
    •    a list of references, especially to relevant pedagogical literature
    •    descriptions of any useful handouts to be provided
