Inaugurated two years ago in Louisville, we are happy to repeat this new and exciting Opportunity for Scholars. The ALSB is pleased to announce this Colloquium for members who have research papers in development in the area of pedagogy and teaching. Modelled after the successful and popular Huber Hurst Seminars hosted by the University of Florida, this Colloquium is for members who are in various stages of research and paper development who want input and suggestions for the work. The paper should be in a draft form and should be intended for eventual publication in a journal with an emphasis on pedagogical and curricular issues, but not yet submitted or accepted for publication anywhere.

Papers that have been presented at regional conferences, at other ALSB meetings, or that the participant plans to present in sessions at the 2024 ALSB conference are welcome. Please note that Colloquium participants who also plan to present the Colloquium paper in a regular breakout session at the ALSB conference must follow the conference submission procedures in addition to submitting their abstract as requested here; submission of an abstract to participate in the Colloquium does not substitute for conference registration.

Colloquium participants may also submit the paper for ALSB awards and must follow the appropriate submission process for each of those, as applicable.

Authors may apply to be an invited presenter by submitting a cover letter, abstract, and a working draft of the paper to Debra Burke, former JLSE Editor in Chief at .com, by June 1, 2024. Coauthored papers are welcome. Also, if you’d like to be considered to be a paper discussant, please email Debra Burke by June 1 as well. Depending on the number of submissions, all abstracts/papers in teaching and pedagogical research are welcome. Should submissions exceed the spaces allotted for the colloquium, the papers/abstract will be blind reviewed for acceptance. We hope that you will consider submitting your current work in progress to this scholarly event and that you will continue to support it as an important feature of future ALSB annual conferences.

Questions and submissions should be directed to: either Debra Burke or Dan Herron, ALSB Executive Secretary by email to
