Sponsored by the University of Nevada at Las Vegas' (UNLV) College of Education, 2020 will mark the fourth annual CARE conference. This event brings 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, such as P-12 teacher education, higher education, educational psychology, adult education, special education, school counseling, school psychology, school climate, policy, TESL, literacy, 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. CARE is 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.
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 (tba), 2019.
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.
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 rate of $69 per night (plus tax & fees) on Sunday, February 23rd through Wednesday, February 26th. The Flamingo Hotel is in walking distance of the major Las Vegas attractions.
