The APA Committee on the Teaching of Philosophy (CTP) and the American Association of Philosophy Teachers (AAPT) invite abstracts for the three AAPT-APA Teaching Hub poster sessions to be held throughout the spring of 2022.

Each Teaching Hub includes a reception and poster session featuring both independent work by undergraduate students and innovative work in the teaching of philosophy by faculty and graduate students. If you have something of your own to share with your colleagues—a new teaching technique, course proposal, assessment strategy, in-class activity, or SoTL research finding—please consider submitting an abstract to one of the Teaching Hub poster sessions below. Please also encourage undergraduates who have completed independent work in philosophy this past academic year and undergraduates who are working on summer research projects in philosophy currently to submit their abstracts.

We are looking for proposals for either two kinds of posters:

  1. Undergraduate students
    Posters featuring independent research by undergraduates (e.g. thesis, independent study). Deadline: November 15, 2021
  2. Faculty or graduate students
    Posters featuring pedagogical innovations or Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL). Deadline: September 15, 2021 (extended deadline)

Please e-mail abstracts of no more than 300 words as PDF attachments, prepared for anonymous review, to Jessica Davis ([email protected]) with the subject line "2022 (Eastern, Central, or Pacific) TH poster session submission."

Seniors preparing thesis/capstone work:if you (with the recommendation of your faculty mentor) would like to present your work in one of our poster sessions but don’t have much to show by November 15, please consider submitting a proposal anyway!

You may submit a proposal to more than one poster session. However, we will only accept distinct proposals to different poster sessions. If you would like to submit the same proposal to more than one poster session, please include in your email a ranking of your preferred meeting locations.

  • Eastern Teaching Hub Poster Session: January 7 (location still TBD)
  • Central Teaching Hub Poster Session: February 25, Chicago, IL
  • Pacific Teaching Hub Poster Session: April 15, Vancouver, BC

The Teaching Hub aims to be an especially inclusive and collegial event, designed to recognize exceptional teaching and mentorship. Faculty members who have organized a trip with a group of undergraduates to one of the APA divisional meetings, in order to present work at the Teaching Hub, have described the experience as transformative for their students.

Statement on COVID-19: While we are currently planning for an in-person poster session at each of the divisional meetings, changes to local and state guidelines may require late modification of our plans. We are exploring the possibilities of and requirements for virtual poster sessions should that become necessary.

We look forward to receiving your submissions.

The AAPT-APA Teaching Hub is a series of interactive workshops and conversations designed specifically for philosophers and created to celebrate teaching within the context of the APA divisional meetings. Jointly organized by the CTP and the AAPT, the Teaching Hub aims to offer a range of high-quality and inclusive development opportunities that address the teaching of philosophy at all levels, pre-college through graduate school.
Important note: Neither the APA nor the AAPT can offer funding to Teaching Hub participants for travel or lodging. Moreover, to present at the Teaching Hub, participants must both join the APA and register for the appropriate meeting (less than $30 total for undergraduates). Please alert your students to these facts before they apply and consider reserving institutional funding for their participation.
