2017 will mark the inauguration of CARE, a newly established annual research conference sponsored by the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV) College of Education.  This event will bring together scholars from around the U.S. and abroad in order to present scholarship related to a variety of contexts, including theory, practice, empirical research, and conceptual advancement.  All presentations will address subjects specifically related to education, broadly defined (e.g., P-12 teacher education, higher education, educational psychology, adult education, special education, school counseling, school psychology, policy, school climate, literacy, TESL, online learning, educational technology, and others).

CARE is a juried, national research conference, meaning that presentation proposals undergo peer-review prior to potential acceptance for presentation.  We expect a robust conference with ample opportunities to exchange theoretical ideas, share research results, help advance practice, make collaborative connections, and learn from one another’s scholarship.

 

1st Annual Conference on Academic Research in Education (CARE) 

January 30–31, 2017

 

Call for Papers

We invite submissions for potential presentation at this year’s CARE conference from a broad range of topics related to education.  Strands may include empirical or theoretical scholarship as well as research methodology evaluation, meta-analyses, critical literature reviews, and topics related to applied practice, including action research, that are grounded in scholarship.  Where possible, topics will be grouped together for presentation within similar tracks.

Submit a proposal that includes a title, an abstract of not more than 150 words, and a summary that does not exceed more than 600 words.  If the proposal is accepted for presentation, then the title and abstract will be included in the conference program.

Proposal Submission Deadline is November 19, 2016.

All presented papers are eligible for submission to the Journal of Behavioral and Social Sciences (JBSS), and all submitted papers will be peer-reviewed for potential publication.

Location

In addition to the scholarly connections and learning that occurs, presenters also are able to enjoy a relaxing atmosphere and, for some, to escape the cold winter weather for a few days.  The conference will be held at The Flamingo Hotel which is located in the center of the Vegas strip, directly across the street from Caesar’s Palace.  We encourage conference attenders stay at the hotel, as we have secured a very low rate of $49 per night (plus tax & fees).  The Flamingo Hotel is in walking distance of the major Las Vegas attractions.
