Visions for the Field

February 13-15, 2020 at the Hyatt Regency in Atlanta, GA

20/20 has different metaphors. When we look back, we may be reminded that “hindsight is 20/20.”
It also may mean the ability to see things clearly or having the foresight of what needs to be in place.
20/20 also represents the ability to bring the field into focus.
ACEDHH 2020 is a call for us to bring and share visions for the field.
Rather than being myopic, how do we use progressive lenses to see the field more clearly at all distances?
In what ways are we better able to see the intersection of academic, social-emotional,
cultural, and physical axes of D/HH individuals?
We encourage the submission of proposals that put the spotlight on professionals in the field of D/HH education.
Additional points will be provided for proposals that incorporate the conference theme such as:
1. promoting foresight in increasing the likelihood of D/HH success
2. framing past research to inform and bring the future of the field into focus
3. clarifying the astigmatism that blurs implementation of best practices
4. identifying the correct prescription for D/HH with additional disabilities
Proposals will be reviewed by the Program Committee in a blind review format.

The criteria upon which proposals will be reviewed includes the importance and relevance for this topic to teacher
education, methodology, outcomes, rationale, and relationship to the theme.

The submission deadline for proposals is
Wednesday, October 2, 2019
