The tenure of our steering committee is coming to an end this spring. Thus, in accordance with our statues, we are currently soliciting candidates for all five places on the TLP Steering Committee. We kindly invite anyone interested to consider standing for steering committee elections for our growing and active ECPR Standing Group on Teaching and Learning Politics. Our group is going to hold elections for the five steering committee posts during April 2017. What started a few years ago with a small circle of enthusiastic and like-minded colleagues, turned now into a supportive network of more than 180 members. We keep exchanging our ideas at various conferences, summer schools, and actively promote the scholarship of teaching and learning. What next? For this we need new ideas, new faces, new input: get now actively involved in further developing our exchange through the standing group!
Nominations are accepted until 31 March 2017. Candidates are kindly asked to send a short “candidate statement” (max 150 words) to firstname.lastname@example.org, which outlines their vision and proposed priorities.
