As a fourth year doctoral candidate, in addition to having completed comprehensive examinations and prospectus and working on the dissertation, my thoughts are also turning towards the job market and securing that first academic position. This purpose of this blog is to chronicle the trials and tribulations of completing my Ph.D. and finding that first job.

NCSS & CUFA - Call for Proposals

In an effort to make this blog more active and more relevant to those in the academy, I'm going to try and get into the habit of posting calls and events as they come through my inbox. This should also be useful to my future students (once I finally get a job somewhere - as an update on that front, have been having some telephone and campus interviews and I've had a good feeling about many of them, let's just hope the fit is there on both sides for at least one of them).

There will two messages in this post.

Subject: [Cufa-l] Call for Papers - CUFA/NCSS Research-Into-Practice Session - due 1-21-07

Research-Into-Practice Session

This session is a CUFA-sponsored session on the NCSS general program designedto explore the implications of research for classroom practice. It is one of 3 CUFA-sponsored sessions that NCSS leadership have agreed to schedule on Friday of the conference.

The purpose of these sessions is to discuss the implications ofresearch for practice. The audience will probably be mainly classroomteachers and some supervisors and teacher educators. As such, it willbe less formal and abstract than an AERA/CUFA presentation, but not ashands-on or practical as a "how-to" session. The entire session willonly be 1 hour, so take that into consideration.

Please submit a 1-paragraph description of your proposedResearch-Into-Practice session to Anand R. Marri, CUFA SpecialSessions Committee Chair (marri@tc.columbia.edu) by Sunday, 1-21-07.Submitters will be notified of their acceptance by Friday, 1-27-07. The acceptedproposals must still go through the regular NCSS review process, butthey will do so as official, CUFA-sponsored sessions.

The proposals not accepted by CUFA may still be submitted to NCSS butwill not be officially CUFA-sponsored sessions. Thank you.
