Each year, NSTA offers NARST and other affiliate organizations an opportunity to provide programming at its area and national conferences. These sessions are a unique chance for researchers to interact directly with practitioners to share implications of their research for practice.

When submitting proposals to the NARST Annual International Conference, members were asked to indicate whether they were interested in presenting their sessions as a NARST-sponsored NSTA session, and to provide a practitioner-friendly abstract of up to 500 words describing how their work would address the needs and interests of NSTA members. The NARST Research Committee wishes to congratulate the members listed below whose sessions were selected for presentation at NSTA’s upcoming 2017-2018 conferences!

If you wish to be considered for the 2018-2019 conference season, don’t forget to check the box and provide an abstract when you submit your next NARST proposal. Abstracts are limited to 500 words and should be tailored to an NSTA audience, including how attendees will be engaged. Abstracts are evaluated on (1) the relevance to teaching/learning science; (2) efforts to connect research & practice; (3) attention to the needs and concerns of practitioners; (4) level of engagement with audience; and (5) provision of ideas or materials that can be adopted by practitioners in their own settings.
