COMMUNICATION EDUCATION INTEREST GROUP
Call for Submissions
2014 Central States Communication Association Conference
April 2 - April 6, 2014
The Communication Education Interest Group invites all members of CSCA to submit competitive papers, programs, and interactive panels to be considered for programming at the 2014 CSCA conference to be held in Minneapolis. Our interest group focuses on the teaching and learning process. We welcome a range of topics, and we especially encourage members to develop provocative panels that focus upon the convention theme.
We welcome a variety of formats, including competitive paper panels, internet discussion groups for which papers are read prior to the conference and sessions focus on responding and discussing the papers, roundtable discussions, spotlight and dialogue sessions, debates, and high density programming. Possible topics for papers and panels include: Assessment of quality in online classrooms, multi-generational classrooms, mentorship panels, creating dialogue between higher education and K-12, pushing boundaries in the classroom, ebooks, apps and other technologies in the classroom, higher levels of relational closeness in the classroom, and zero-level public speaking classes. We strongly encourage the submission of panels that are co-sponsored with other CSCA units. Please contact the Communication Education Interest Group Chairperson for help coordinating co-sponsored panels.
Awards: The Communication Education Interest Group presents several awards. The Gustav Friedrich Award is presented to the top student competitive paper and includes a certificate and a $50.00 prize. We also award certificates to the top three competitive papers submitted to the interest group.
Guidelines for Submission:
(1) Papers: Only completed papers will be accepted. Papers must conform to most current APA standards and include a title page that is a separate document from the paper, allowing author identity to be concealed. Remove all author references in the text of the paper. Students (including graduate students) should type "STUDENT" on the upper right-hand corner of the title page. Indicate if author(s) is/are CSCA Members. Student papers are those that are authored only by the student. Faculty mentors/advisors may not appear as an author on a student submission.
(2) Panels: Individuals proposing panels must complete and use the 2014 CSCA Panel Proposal Request Form available on the CSCA website. Panel submissions must also include the following: (a) title, (b) abstract, and (c) a complete list of participants along with their institutional affiliations, contact information (address, e-mail, and telephone), and if they are CSCA Members. Paper panels should also include titles and brief abstracts (100 words or less) of the papers. It can also help to include brief abstracts (75 words or less) of participant's perspectives on discussion panels.
All papers must be submitted electronically using Microsoft Word. Documents sent using any other format will be returned to the sender. An e-mail acknowledging receipt of paper and panel proposals will be sent for each submission. All media requests must be made at the time of submission. Please only request media if it is absolutely essential to your presentation, as media requests will be closely examined before approval. Laptop computers will not be made available for presentations. Your submission implies that you agree to follow appropriate presentation guidelines if your paper/panel is accepted (i.e., it is generally unacceptable to read your paper to those in attendance).
Submissions must be received by October 4, 2013.
Send all submissions electronically to:
University of Illinois Springfield
