APSA Teaching & Learning Conference 2013

tlc2013_emailheader_theme

February 1 is the last day to register for the American Political Science Association Teaching & Learning Conference, which is being held on 8-10 February 2013 in Long Beach, California.

The program contains two full tracks on classroom simulation and serious gaming, one on American politics and simulation design, the other on international relations and comparative politics.

I won’t be able to attend this year, unfortunately. However if any PAXsims readers are going, we would love a conference report—drop us a line.
