CFP: Teaching Mistakes, Classroom Disasters, Course Challenges, Failing Lessons

Call for Abstracts: Pacific APA Panel on Teaching Mistakes, Classroom Disasters, Course Challenges, Failing Lessons

Organized by the APA Committee on the Teaching of Philosophy

Deadline: October 6, 2014

The American Philosophical Association Committee on the Teaching of Philosophy invites abstracts for a panel on teaching mistakes – or worse – at the Pacific Division meeting of the APA, April 1-5, 2015 in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

The Committee invites panel proposals on teaching mistakes you have made, disasters that have befallen you, or that you have brought on yourself, how you have responded to expected or unexpected challenges in the classroom, and what you have learned about philosophy, and teaching philosophy, from them.

Individual submissions as well as proposals for several panelists together are welcome. The Committee will strive to assemble a diverse panel, including presentations from different institutional settings, course levels, and subfields of philosophy. Please submit as an email attachment an abstract prepared for blind review, 500 word maximum, to Katheryn Doran at kdoran@hamilton.edu by October 6, 2014. Include your name, affiliation, and contact information in the body of the email. Authors can expect a decision by October 10, 2014. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at the email address above.

  1. Well, I think anyone who has ever taught can answer the question about facing challenges in the classroom. When it's not one thing, it's another.
