Invitation to submit a proposal to the 2015 Conference of the New England Consortium of Academic Support Professionals

Request for Proposals:Presentation of  Scholarly “Works in Progress”
New England Consortium of Academic Support Professionals (NECASP) Conference
December 7, 2015
New England Law Boston
Boston, Massachusetts

The 2015 Conference of the New England Consortium of Academic Support Professionals offers a great opportunity to present in a supportive and collaborative environment. NECASP welcomes proposals on works-in-progress from idea to fruition. The topic this year is “Changing Students, Evolving Roles for ASP.”  We will explore ideas on issues surrounding our challenges as academic support professionals in light of the changing student body (e.g., initiatives to support the influx of students who are scoring lower on LSAT and GPA scales, increased promotion of formative assessment, academic standing issues and grading, etc.).   If you wish to present a Work in Progress, the proposal process is as follows:
1.      Submit your proposal by October 9, 2015, via email to Lisa Freudenheim at lfreudenheim@nesl.edu.
2.      Proposals may be submitted as a Word document or as a PDF
3.      Proposals must include the following:
        a.     Name and title of presenter
        b.     Law School
        c.      Address, email address, and telephone number
        d.      Title of Work in Progress to be presented
        e.      Abstract of your scholarly Work in Progress, no more than 500 words
        f.       Statement regarding the status of the work (whether in outline form, early draft, or near                 done).
        g.      Media or computer presentation needs.

4.      As noted above, proposals are due on October 9, 2015.  The NECASP Board will review the proposals and reply to each by October 23, 2015.
If you have any questions about your proposal, please do not hesitate to contact me and we hope to see many of you in Boston later this year! And if you would like to attend but not present, please email Philip Kaplan at pkaplan@suffolk.edu to register for the FREE full-day event!
