Call for Proposals
6th Annual Biology Education Research Symposium
2014 Professional Development Conference
Thursday, November 13, 2014
Cleveland Convention Center
We welcome all life sciences education researchers
from elementary to graduate levels.
You are invited to submit a proposal to present your research in biology education for the 2014 NABT Professional Development Conference. This is a refereed session. All papers will go through double blind peer review and accepted papers will be presented during the symposium and published online in the 2014 Proceedings. Reviews will be guided by the following criteria:
Subject/Problem: Is there a clear focus, rationale, model, theory, or philosophy upon which the proposal is based?
Design or Procedure: Are the methodology, procedure, design, and organization appropriate?
Analyses and Findings: Do the syntheses of ideas or data analyses and findings appear to be appropriate and complete? Do the conclusions drawn follow from the data?
Contribution: Do the conclusions contribute valuable insights into the teaching/learning of biology?
General Interest: Does the presentation promise to be of general interest to NABT members?
The format will be a traditional presentation for papers by individual or co-authors lasting 15 minutes each with an additional five - ten minutes for questions.
