ASTE 2022 Call for Proposals Reminder

Call for Proposals 
2022 ASTE International Conference 
Why Science Education?
Greenville, SC

It is time to submit session proposals for the Association for Science Teacher Education 2022 Conference in Greenville, SC!  We know these are uncertain times for all of us, but we sincerely hope that we will be able to gather together in Greenville January 6-8, 2022 to explore Why Science Education?

If needed, there is an option to attend virtually for one day of the conference on Friday, January 7, 2022 along with other key events (e.g., Keynote, Membership Meeting) throughout the conference days. Note that a video submission is required before the conference if virtual attendance is chosen.

The conference proposal system uses a profile-based approach that will result in fewer notification emails going to spam folders and will also allow for proposal editing until the June 30, 2021 due date.  You will also receive the decision letter and reviewer comments via logging in to your profile.

You must have a current (or recent) ASTE membership OR a non-member account to submit a proposal. If you have a membership, your account is already in place. Instructions for creating and using a non-member account (basically a username and password) are located on the proposal submission page located at  Once your account is in place, you need to log in to access the proposal system.

Proposals should address issues concerning science teacher education. Information about formats, threads, proposal requirements, and rubrics for proposals can be found at:

In addition to submitting a proposal, please consider taking on the role(s) of reviewer and/or presider for the conference.  You fill out the volunteer application here to serve in one of these rolls:

The priority deadline for submitting proposals is MIDNIGHT JUNE 30, 2021.  Proposals received after the deadline will only be considered on a space-available basis.  For more information or to submit a proposal, please go to the ASTE website at
