The AAPT-APA Teaching HubThe APA Committee on the Teaching of Philosophy (CTP) and the American Association of Philosophy Teachers (AAPT) invite proposals for Teaching Hub sessions at the 2020 Eastern Division meeting in Philadelphia, PA, January 8–11.

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.

Once again this year we are offering a Teaching Hub at all three APA meetings. Each Teaching Hub will include a poster session featuring both (1) independent work by undergraduate students and (2) work in the teaching of philosophy by faculty and graduate students. Please consider submitting your own work to one of the Teaching Hub poster sessions (deadline: November 15), and please 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 an abstract to one of the Teaching Hub poster sessions (deadline: August 15).

Please also consider submitting a proposal for one of more of the following sessions at the 2020 Eastern Division meeting by July 15:

  • Teaching Large Courses
    This session will feature presentations on innovative pedagogical approaches to teaching courses with 50 or more students enrolled.

The complete calls for proposals are available on the APA website.

For general information about the AAPT-APA Teaching Hub, please visit the AAPT website and the CTP webpage. For specific information about the Teaching Hub at the 2020 Eastern Division meeting in Philadelphia, PA, please contact Wendy Turgeon (turgeon@optonline.net).

We look forward to receiving your proposals.

All the best,

David W. Concepción
Chair, APA Committee on the Teaching of Philosophy
