The AAPT-APA Teaching Hub

The APA Committee on the Teaching of Philosophy (CTP) and the American Association of Philosophy Teachers (AAPT) invite proposals for Teaching Hub sessions at the 2021 Central Division meeting in New Orleans, LA, February 24–27.

Note: Currently, all three APA divisions are planning to hold in-person meetings in 2021. At the same time, we are also considering alternative formats, such as virtual meetings, as contingencies in the case that our usual meeting format becomes impossible. Though external forces like the ongoing pandemic affect and inform our plans, your participation is the most critical input for planning any meeting. If you are considering submitting a proposal, we encourage you to do so.

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.

Please consider submitting a proposal for one of more of the following sessions at the 2021 Central Division meeting by September 1:

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

Teaching Hub Poster Sessions

Each Teaching Hub includes a poster session and reception 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 by August 15.

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 an abstract to one of the Teaching Hub poster sessions by November 15.

Please note that all APA meeting participants are required to register for each meeting they attend.

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 2021 Central Division meeting in New Orleans, LA, please contact Claire Lockard (

We look forward to receiving your proposals.
