Conference Advice

I saw some of the Philosophy of Ed conference that I mentioned last week, and while I didn’t see any of the negative behaviors discussed in this piece, I have to admit that I was thinking about it throughout each of the presentations I saw.

It’s good advice, I think. Worth reading for anyone who is thinking about presenting at a conference, I’d say. This is how the author describes the piece:

I hope these reflections contribute toward making academic conferences a more rewarding experience for first-time presenters. These are key venues in the professionalization process, but it doesn’t have to entail an exercise in conformity. At the same time, these are formalized rituals with norms and conventions, and these guidelines are meant to encourage one to envision ways to express inventiveness and brio within the bounds of those tacit rules.

Check out the rest when you get the chance.
