2021 TLC at APSA
The fourth “TLC at APSA,” the teaching and learning conference-within-a-conference, will take place Saturday, October 2, 2021, in Seattle, WA, as part of the APSA Annual Meeting. This full-day event seeks to promote the scholarship of teaching and learning, equip faculty with new techniques and resources for teaching, and enhance the role of teaching in the discipline of political science. Please join us for this gathering, which will provide a highly interactive forum for scholars to share innovative tools for political science education and research on the scholarship of teaching and learning.
In keeping with the overall Annual Meeting theme of “Promoting Pluralism,” this year’s TLC at APSA theme is “Teaching Pluralism through Political Science Education.” We perceive pluralism, in the widest possible way, to represent a diversity of ideas, experiences and identities. Teaching pluralism builds classrooms and environments that encourage students to develop a deeper understanding along with tolerance of diverse ideological thought. It looks to create communities inclusive of experiences across the spectrum of human abilities, gender identities and sexual orientations. It makes space for the identities and aspirations of members of varied ethnic, religious and linguistic communities. We are particularly interested in proposals that explore the ways in which we teach and model the principles of pluralism for the 21st century View the full schedule here.
