2021 Annual Conference

Balloon Fiesta, Albuquerque, New Mexico

Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta

AATC is pleased to announce that our 27th Annual Conference will be held October 7-9, 2021 in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The theme of this year’s conference is Creativity and the Muse. AATC is looking for proposals that focus on creativity and the “muses” (or inspirations) we look to in our work—particularly during these challenging times for curriculum and education. Proposals that also address any issue related to teaching, curriculum, individual experiences, or educational practice are highly encouraged. Presentation types include: papers, issues and ideas, posters, panels/ symposium, and workshops.

We’re looking forward to seeing our AATC colleagues and guests in-person. We will continue to observe CDC recommendations regarding the pandemic and we are prepared to offer a hybrid or virtual component for a portion of the conference if needs be. Please stay tuned to learn more through conference emails, the AATC website, and our social media feeds. Questions? Email Dr. Daniel Conn, Program Chair, at aatcconference@gmail.com


The proposal submission window is now open! Deadline: May 1, 2021



Featured Guests:

Dr. Gregory Cajete, University of New Mexico

Dr. Sam Intrator, Smith College
