Changes for 2021:

  • The call contains an FAQ sheet and checklist to assist in your adherence to proposal requirements before submitting the proposal.
  • The call includes roundtables as a presentation option.
  • Last, the call introduces strand revisions while retaining numbers associated with strands.

The 2019-2020 NARST Board voted to revise several of the strands in accordance with survey responses obtained from the NARST membership in November 2019. Revisions are as follows:

  • Eliminated Strand 9: Reflective Practice 
  • Renamed Strand 10 to “Curriculum and Assessment” and revised its description
  • Renamed Strand 12 to “Technology for Teaching, Learning, and Research” and revised its description
  • Renamed Strand 14 to “Environmental Education and Sustainability” and revised its description 
  • Renamed Strand 15 to “Policy, Reform, and Program Evaluation” and revised its description
