The American Association of Philosophy Teachers (AAPT), in collaboration with the APA Committee on the Teaching of Philosophy, seeks presentations for an AAPT interactive workshop at the upcoming Teaching Hub at the 2019 Central Division Meeting, February 20-23 in Denver, Colorado.

We are seeking teachers prepared to demonstrate an innovative approach to philosophical pedagogy that aims at achieving justice in the classroom. The goal of an AAPT workshop is to leave session attendees with a new pedagogical technique that they can incorporate into their classes. In most cases, this involves creating a lesson plan for the workshop that enables session attendees to explore the technique interactively, as active learners, rather than passively, as witnesses to a presentation.

We will aim to assemble a panel that is diverse in all of the relevant respects, including career stage and institutional affiliation.

Format: Presentations should be 30 - 45 minutes in length and should include a description of what attendees will learn and do during the session.

Submissions: Proposals of no more than 500 words should be sent to Rebecca Scott, rebecca.g.scott@gmail.com, by September 4, 2018. Please include an explanation of the proposed presentation, highlighting any of its especially innovative and/or interactive aspects.

Deadline for Proposals: September 4, 2018.


The AAPT/APA Teaching Hub is a set of sessions about teaching philosophy held at various divisional meetings of the APA, emphasizing inclusive and collegial interactions.  The Teaching Hub coordinates conversations about the teaching of philosophy at all levels, pre-college through graduate school.  For more information about the Teaching Hub at the 2019 Central Division Meeting, contact Rebecca Scott (rebecca.g.scott@gmail.com).
