Call For Proposals

This conference celebrates the work of Christian practitioners in all schooling systems

The conference strands welcome original research and/or innovative practice inquiry.

Types of presentations:

  1. Paper Presentation: within a similar-themed session, two presenters summarize their research papers or classroom practices and encourage audience participation.  Within each 1 ½ hr session there will be opportunity for 2 presentations averaging approximately 30 minutes to talk and 5 minutes for questions. Multiple author presentations will receive a double time slot.
  2. Round Table Discussion Presentations: prepared research papers will be presented within a group discussion format.  Each (1 ½ hr session) will allow three presenters ample time to present research (15 minutes) with time for discussion.  Prepared questions from the presenter would be an asset to begin to generate discussion.
  3. Poster Presentations: A more informal way of presenting research featuring summaries and graphics that showcase findings and relevant literature.  Time will be slotted for a gallery walk to observe all posters and discuss them with presenters.

Each panel, round table and presentation will have an assigned chair. Poster presentations will be facilitated by the author of the poster.

Guidelines for proposal submission:

  1. For each of the single paper, multi-author paper and poster sessions, specific mention should be made of the following: All proposals should include the purpose of the research or practice, the theoretical framework/ brief literature review, the methods and sources of data, and the results/conclusions and/or interpretation of the data, along with the educational relevance of the study within the specific theme chosen for the paper.
  2. The proposal should be between 250-500 words (excluding references).  A reference list of all works cited should accompany the proposal.  Proposals may be qualitative or quantitative in nature including conceptual analyses, policy analyses, and theoretical perspectives.
  3. Proposals shall be reviewed by three reviewers and you will then be notified as to acceptance for a presentation and asked to register as a venue for acceptance.
  4. For work on classroom practice, solid connections to former literature or innovative work should be made. Your work should comment on design, implementation, outcomes and learning for educators and students. Student presentations are also welcome. Multiple submissions can be made, but more than one will be accepted based on the total number of proposals and the time slots available.

Conference proposals may still be accepted if you submit your proposal directly to Christina Belcher at

Papers will be welcomed for publication as manuscript submissions for the ICCTE journal. Our guidelines for submission are online at the ICCTE journal site:
