ROLLING SUBMISSION / EARLY ACCEPTANCE MODEL
ELD uses a “rolling submission” model for proposals: every proposal will be reviewed and given feedback within 2 weeks of submission. Your submission will either be accepted or you’ll be provided feedback from our reviewers and offered an opportunity to revise and resubmit. We’ll continue this process of accepting or giving constructive feedback to proposals until all presentation slots are filled or we reach our INITIAL PROPOSAL DEADLINE of November 21st, 2014.
Submissions will still be accepted after November 21st, but they will be considered in the second round of proposals. We will work with those who submitted by the EARLY ACCEPTANCE DEADLINE and then look toward later submissions to complete the program, should presentation slots still be available.
Why this model? Two main reasons: we've seen that having revise-and-resubmit cycles make our conference’s presentations the best they can be for our attendees, and accepting excellent proposals as they arrive is a great way to let our prospective audience know what to look forward to even before the whole program is finalized. In addition, this model is easier on our reviewers as we don’t get a rush of proposals on deadline day.
How do you submit a proposal? Go to http://eld.montclair.edu/eld-call-for-proposals/eld-call-for-proposals-faq/
read some brief instructions on what we need in your submission, and then go to URL and supply that information. We’ll be in touch to confirm your submission was complete, and then let you know within a couple weeks the response from our reviewers.
Accepted conference presentations have the potential to be included as proceedings in the Journal of Emerging Learning Design.
