Call for Proposals: Symposium for Part-time, Adjunct, and Contingent Educators (SPACE)

Logo - Symposium for Part-Time, Adjunct and Contingent Educators

Saturday, June 18, 2016 • Atlanta, Georgia

 

Kennesaw State University’s Center of Excellence in Teaching and Learning with the support of the University System of Georgia would like you to know about an exciting new conference that will be taking place this summer in Atlanta!

The Symposium for Part-time, Adjunct, and Contingent Educators (SPACE) was created to provide an opportunity for contingent faculty to participate in a peer-reviewed conference. Part-time and adjunct instructors make up the majority of faculty in higher education, but there are very few spaces for this group to share their academic work. As the first conference of its kind in the Southeastern United States, SPACE aims to provide an affordable and centrally located conference for part-time faculty to present on topics related to their teaching or their original research in their academic disciplines.

We are currently accepting proposals to this exciting, inaugural conference.

Visit Submit Proposal website to submit your SPACE proposal before March 15.
