2021 American Taxation Association Virtual Midyear Meeting

Call for Proposals: ATA Teaching and Curriculum Conference

The seventh annual ATA Teaching and Curriculum Conference will be held virtually on February 18, 2021 prior to the ATA Midyear Meeting. The planning committee is soliciting proposals for a session where faculty can “pitch” tax teaching tips and techniques. This session will feature a number of teaching ideas that can each be shared, including related materials, illustrations, instructions, etc., in a relatively short – 3 – 4 minute - presentation. Presenters will participate in round table discussions about their proposal after the presentation. If you have developed a unique exercise, case, active learning exercise, online tool, or other pedagogical innovation you’d like to share, this session is for you!

YOUR PROPOSAL DOES NOT NEED TO BE A FULL PAPER OR CASE STUDY to participate in the conference. Teaching ideas and strategies are welcome! Proposals related to any and all substantive and pedagogical issues are welcome. Ideas related to the following would be particularly interesting.

  • Tips for teaching tax in an on-line format
  • Tips for incorporating practice into your class
  • Tips for teaching tax research in both research and non-research focused courses
  • Cases or problems for incorporating data analytics into tax courses of various levels  
  • Tips for enhancing student interest in taxation
  • Tips for incorporating tax policy into your class

Proposals should include a brief (1-2 page) description of the idea.

Submissions must be completed by October 23, 2020.  EXTENDED TO NOVEMBER 6, 2020.
