Final Call for Works in Progress Showcase
2014 ALISE Annual Conference 

For the Works in Progress Showcase, we invite scholars at any stage of their career to share research-in-progress through posters. The poster will highlight work-in-progress and may present research proposals, theoretical framework, pilot studies, early findings, or preliminary conclusions. In line with this year’s conference theme, educational entrepreneurship, we are particularly interested in: early stages of conceptualization, proposals, or implementations of new educational initiatives. This may include new modes of delivery, markets, synergies with cognate disciplines, collaborators or competitors, and new ways to remunerate instructors.

Participants in the Works in Progress Showcase will receive feedback in an informal setting. This is an excellent opportunity to identify collaborators and potential publication venues, and to enrich research by obtaining feedback. It may also facilitate collaboration and development of new educational initiatives.

The posters for the Works in Progress Showcase are neither refereed nor judged. Space for poster display is limited therefore acceptance will be based availability
