Visitor Studies Association Conference 2014

Visitor Studies Association Conference 2014

July 15, 2014 - July 19, 2014
Albuquerque, NM

The 2014 Visitor Studies Association Conference is to be held July 15-19, 2014 in Albuquerque, NM around the theme Building Capacity for Evaluation: Individuals, Institutions, the Field.

For our 2014 conference, VSA invites the informal learning community to join us in creating a conference program that pushes the field of visitor studies forward by addressing the increasing interest in evaluation and the growing demand for evidence. This year, VSA will think strategically about how to continually build capacity for evaluation.

Call for Sessions

We encourage innovative session formats and the inclusion of substantial audience discussion within sessions. Although we expect that many papers will fit well within traditional formats (e.g., poster session, paper session, panel, or roundtable), please feel free to propose alternative ways to communicate your work. We are especially looking for ways to involve participants through thought-provoking, reflective conversations related to key ideas and issues raised during your session.
The deadline for submissions is: Monday, December 16, 2013.

Call for Pre-Conference Workshops

The Visitor Studies Association Professional Development Committee is requesting proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the 2014 annual conference. We seek workshop leaders from a broad range of fields to present half-day or full-day sessions that are lively, interactive, and offer participants the opportunity to broaden their knowledge and skills in studying or enhancing the experiences of visitors in a wide range of institutions.
The deadline for submissions is: Monday, December 16, 2013.
