Newsletter: End of June 2012

As we come to the close of the month of June, here are some updates for your consideration:

NOTICE:  AERA PROPOSAL DEADLINE PUSHED BACK!!!

The deadline for AERA Proposals for the 2013 annual meeting in beautiful San Francisco has been moved to MONDAY, July 23rd.  The theme for this year’s conference, Education and Poverty: Theory, Research, Policy and Praxis, speaks to many of you and your work in self-study research.

Please note that you have one more day to pull together your proposals (that’s right, you should plan to turn in more than one proposal targeting the SSTEP SIG, enabling us to have more time slots for presentations!). For specific information about the AERA 2013 annual meeting and the proposal guidelines, please check out the following website:

NOTICE: PUBLICATION AVAILABLE AT WEBSITE!

There have been several queries regarding how to obtain Julian Kitchen’s and Tom Russell’s (editors) 2011 publication from the Canadian Association of Teacher Education, entitled Canadian Perspectives on the Self-Study of Teacher Education Practices.  While pdf files are not attachable to this AERA list-serv system, this publication can be downloaded from the following site:
