Call for Poster Session Abstracts

David Krajec
Education Poster Session Chair

There's still time to submit ideas for the Education Commission's sixth annual Education Poster Session.

The deadline to submit abstracts to the commission is January 15. The purpose of the poster session, held at the Annual USITT Conference & Stage Expo, is to spread 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 equivalent to paper presentations and qualify as scholarly work.

Typed abstracts should be no longer than 200 words and 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 by surface mail to: David R. Krajec, Cardinal Stritch University, 6801 N. Yates Rd., Box 101, Milwaukee, WI 53217 phone 414-410-4170; fax 414-410-4111 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.

The popularity of the Costume Commission poster session demonstrates this to be an enjoyable format for sharing new ideas and techniques.
