Ambassadors of Scientific Understanding

 

One of the primary goals of IAALDE is to use this cross-society collaboration to advance scientific and practical understandings of how to teach, how learners learn, and how technological systems can more effectively support education. As part of that effort, each year each member society will identify a Best Paper from its own conference and provide fiscal and logistic support for one of the author(s) of that paper to attend the conference of another IAALDE member and present the work there in a designated track.

 

Each member society will take responsibility for determining:

1.     Their own process for identifying the best paper in accordance with their society’s guidelines, and

2.     The level of funding provided for expenses related to presenting the paper.

 

The recipient of the award from each society would then select from among conferences sponsored by other IAALDE member societies listed in the table below.  In order to present at a member society’s conference, the awardee must contact the society’s representative listed below by the listed deadline in order to secure a presentation slot at the next conference of that society occurring after the deadline.
