Call for nominations for the J. Estill Alexander Future Leaders Award for outstanding dissertation and master’s research papers

The Research Committee of the Association of Literacy Educators and Researchers sponsors competitions the J. Estill Alexander Future Leaders Award, which is for an outstanding dissertation in literacy and an outstanding paper written to complete requirements for a master’s or specialist degree program. Winners will receive certificates of merit and will be invited to discuss the dissertation or paper at ALER’s 2014 Conference. The award recipients will be invited to submit a manuscript to the ALER Yearbook based on a version of their dissertation or paper, or their presentation. Application information is here. Applications are due by August 1, 2014.

Call for Program Proposals for Adult Learning Division Meeting

Submit proposals, including a personal information sheet for each presenter, to: Robin Pate at

Roundtable proposal form

Deadline for submission: June 15, 2014

All proposals will receive a blind review by members of the ALD Committee. Each proposal will be evaluated for its significance, research design (if appropriate), thoroughness, clarity, and appropriateness for the roundtable discussion. Factors that tend to disqualify proposals are failure to complete the proposal according to guidelines, the promotion of commercial materials or programs, or topics that are unrelated to reading or literacy.

Each individual who submits a proposal will be notified by the ALD Committee’s decision by July 2014. If additional individuals appear on the program proposal, it is the responsibility of the person submitting the proposal to inform these individuals of the final disposition of the proposal.
