We are pleased to invite submissions for presentation at the 2023 Association of Leadership Educators Annual Conference. We invite submissions across six categories – research and practice/application manuscripts, workshops, panels, roundtable discussions, and posters. For a full description of each proposal category, along with related templates, submission and formatting requirements, and review rubrics, please see the Conference Website. Integration of the conference theme into submissions is encouraged but not required.
See the 2023 Call for Proposals and Submission Formatting Guidelines for full submission and formatting details.
See past conference proceedings for examples of successful submissions. The submission portal will open December 09, 2022.
Research manuscript submissions share the results of a qualitative, quantitative, or mixed methods study that contribute to the emerging leadership education and educational strategy discourse. Submissions will include a clear statement of research purpose, review and synthesis of related literature, clear explanation of methodology, discussion of findings and conclusions, and appropriate recommendations.
Practice/application manuscript submissions will discuss a project, program, practice or tool that has been implemented. Application manuscripts should include a clear issue statement, a grounding of the pedagogy/andragogy in salient literature, description of the application, discussion of outcomes and implications, and recommendations.
Workshops provide an opportunity for a longer, more in-depth experience and active participation around an innovative educational practice, teaching and learning tool, or research method. Facilitators will include opportunities for active attendee participation and/or knowledge sharing.
Panel chairs bring together 3-4 experts in an area of work for facilitated discussion and question and answer opportunities. Panel topics may be practice, research, or pedagogy/learning focused and interdisciplinary panels that reach across areas of practice or expertise are encouraged.
Roundtable discussions allow participants to discuss and share ideas with each other on a topic of shared interest with the aid of a facilitator. These small, informal discussions may focus on nascent research or program ideas to facilitate collaboration around shared interests to strengthen future projects. They also serve as opportunities for conversation and community building among leadership educators with similar interests.
During roundtable sessions, facilitators should provide a brief introduction to the topic and allow attendees to discuss and share ideas with each other. The facilitator serves as a guide and frames the conversation and encourages active discussion from the group.
Each roundtable session will last 45 minutes and participants are encouraged to come and go between roundtables during the session as they please. Facilitators should be prepared to engage attendees as they come and go.
Professional quality posters outlining either leadership practice or research relevant to the leadership education field are encouraged. Submissions from scholars and practitioners are encouraged. Posters should introduce, share, or describe an interesting practice or program in the field of leadership education or describe an existing research project at either the emerging or final stage.
