The 2015 conference offers a venue for presenting new research, findings, and methods and exploring higher level topics and questions of interest to the field of informal learning. This year, the thematic focus of the keynote and plenaries will emphasize the ways in which we can take action through our work.

Some of the questions this theme facilitates presenters, speakers, and attendees in addressing include:

Program Proposal Guidelines
We encourage the inclusion of substantial audience discussion within sessions. Although we expect that many presentations will fit well within traditional formats (e.g., poster session, paper session, panel, or roundtable), please feel free to propose alternative ways to communicate your work. We are especially looking for ways to involve participants through thought-provoking, reflective conversations related to key ideas and issues raised during your session.
This year, we are using an online submission form. Read through the guidelines below; then go to https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2015VSAConference to submit your proposal. Please note that special formatting, such as bullets, is not transferred in the online form.
