Conference Presentations

Presentations and proposal application submission must be related to the conference theme “The Inspiration and Diversity of Justice Education”. There are 14 streams that connect to this main theme, each presentation must fall under one of these streams.  Only the “lead presenter” needs to submit an application. The application will ask to include the names and emails of all c0-presenters. Deadline for applications is 1 June 2019.

TOT Workshop

The Train the Trainers “TOT” will be held on December 9-10, 2019.  The 2-day TOT program is designed to provide an opportunity for teachers to enhance their skills and to be exposed to a range of teaching methods and tools.  This year, the TOT will have two tracks: 1) Implementing Justice Education in Diverse Contexts, or 2) Street Law. Participants will be asked to select one of the two tracks at the time of registration. Because registration for the TOT is limited, participants who register are required to attend both days.

Conference Participation Application

Applications for Conference Session Participation is now open. Please click on the below button to access details about the session streams and application form. 

Proposals for General Conference sessions should indicate on the submission form which stream or streams the proposal relates to. Session proposals are reviewed by GAJE’s Program Committee, which will apply the criteria listed below:  

  1. The proposal must adhere to the general theme of the conference and demonstrate the inspiration and diversification of Justice Education.
  2. The proposal must fit within one or more of the streams listed above, and you should be clear which stream it fits within. If possible, indicate the primary stream for your proposal.
  3. Where there is more than one presenter, GAJE requires that a “Lead Presenter” submit the Proposal Submission Form. That person, unless changed, becomes the point of contact for the presentation throughout the stage of proposal review, decision, scheduling, and questions and logistical information for the conference.  Accepted proposals are assigned to Stream Coordinators who work with Lead Presenters on time allocation and possible merger or joinder or proposals on similar themes within conference time slots. 
  4. NOTE: In order to avoid scheduling conflicts, individuals may not be listed as presenters on more than two proposals (either lead or otherwise).

The proposal submission form asks for the title of the presentation, contact information for all presenters, a summary of 500 words or less, and a short statement of relevance to one more conference streams.  The form also asks a number of questions that reflect the criteria for selection: the presentation’s objectives, how interactive methods will be used, presenters’ past GAJE conference participation, time requested, and presenters’ CV or resume.  Geographic diversity among presenters is also an important criterion in proposal review.  In the past, presenters have successfully solicited international partners to collaborate in their presentations before submission by using the GAJE listserv.
