We invite and encourage you to share your ideas and best practices for teaching peace at the 2014 Peace and Justice Studies Association conference in San Diego (October 16-18).
The conference will feature an educators strand, meaning there will be at least one workshop or presentation per breakout session focused on education-related themes to support the professional and personal development of current and future teachers from various settings and disciplines.
This is where we need your help! In order to make that happen, we need educators like YOU to present your fantastic ideas on how education can be a tool for peaceful transformation at all levels, from the personal to the global. Submissions are welcome and encouraged from teachers of all contexts, including PK-12, higher education, and nonformal educators working in community settings, nonprofits, etc. This is a wonderful opportunity to share the work you are doing to promote peace through education, and to contribute to our collective understanding of best practices in the field.
Breakout sessions can take various formats, including presentations, workshops, and panel discussions. Some examples of possible themes include (but are not limited to) pedagogy, curriculum, building a culture of peace in your classroom or school, alternative education programs, restorative justice practices, and mindfulness. You can view the full call for papers and submission guidelines here: http://www.peacejusticestudies.org/conference
Submissions are due by April 30.
Please email Stephanie Knox Cubbon at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. We look forward to your participation!
