NABT2017 Call for Research Papers

NABT Four-Year College & University Section’s Biology Education Research Committee invites you to submit a proposal to present your research in biology education at the 9th Annual NABT Biology Education Research Symposium being held at the 2017 NABT Professional Development Conference.

All life sciences education researchers from elementary to graduate levels, in formal and informal settings, are welcome.

This is a refereed session. All papers will go through double blind review. Reviews will be guided by the following criteria:

  • Subject/Problem: Is there a clear focus, rationale, model, theory, or philosophy upon which the proposal is based?
  • Design or Procedure: Are the methodology, procedure, design, and organization appropriate?
  • Analyses and Findings: Do the syntheses of ideas or data analyses and findings appear to be appropriate and complete? Do the conclusions drawn follow from the data?
  • Contribution: Do the conclusions contribute valuable insights into the teaching/learning of biology?
  • General Interest: Does the presentation promise to be of general interest to NABT members?

The format will be a traditional presentation for papers by individual or co-authors lasting 15 minutes.

The proposal submission deadline is midnight on June 15, 2017 and complete submission information can be downloaded at 2017 Education Research Symposium. Blind review will take place in June with final selection being made by early July. Submitters will be notified of acceptance or denial in July.

All presenters are required to register for the NABT Conference and provide an electronic manuscript for distribution through the official proceedings. Proceedings from previous symposia are found at NABT Research Symposium Proceedings.
