Poster Session Abstracts
Due by January 15

The Education Commission of USITT will present its sixth annual Education Poster Session at the 2006 Annual Conference & Stage Expo in Louisville. The deadline for submitting poster ideas is January 15.

The purpose of the poster session is to disseminate information about new, exciting, or re-thought innovations in teaching methodology and pedagogy. The information contained in the poster can cover any area of interest to the theatre educator including new techniques, new solutions to old problems, old solutions to new problems, and results from research. Posters will be juried by a committee. These poster sessions are recognized by many educational institutions as equal to paper presentations and qualify as scholarly work.

A typed abstract should be submitted by January 15 and should be no longer than 200 words. It should provide a brief but concise summary of the information presented in the poster. Preferably, abstracts should be submitted electronically (e-mail), but can also be sent to: David R. Krajec, Cardinal Stritch University, 6801 N. Yates Rd., Box 101, Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53217; phone 414-410-4170; fax 414-410-4111; or e-mail

The jury committee will review all abstracts and may contact authors for clarification or modification. The committee reserves the right to refuse a paper due to space limitations. As has been proved by the popularity of the Costume Commission poster session, this is an enjoyable format for sharing new ideas and techniques.
