Call for abstracts: Due Feb. 26, 2016

We welcome abstracts from researchers and practitioners; community members and organizations; undergraduate, graduate, and PreK-12 students; and PreK-12 and university faculty and administrators.

We seek presentations on any issue facing the field of education so long as the presentations are attentive to the impact of context and community on what is taught and learned.  We expect that conference presentations will help us better understand educational issues, tools, and concepts by placing them in context(s).
