Welcome to the NACTA Abstract Submission Platform
North American Colleges and Teachers of Agriculture (NACTA) are pleased to announce the call for abstracts for Poster and Oral presentations for the NACTA Conference to be held in Las Cruces, New Mexico from June 20-24, 2022. The NACTA conference provides opportunities to connect with and learn from others who share the same passion for the improvement of teaching and learning in agriculture, food and natural resources. The annual NACTA conference will provide you with new teaching techniques, ideas and resources. It is also one of the best professional development activities for networking with other teaching professionals where the common discipline is “teaching.”
All accepted presentations will be available to attendees online for viewing in addition to those presented live in Wooster.
POSTER SESSIONS – General Information
All attendees of the meeting can submit an abstract for a poster presentation. Abstracts shall be 300 words or less in length. While references and figures are a usual component of a full poster presentation, do not include them in the 300-word abstract. Abstracts will be reviewed by the Review Committee for quality and relevance. Accepted posters will be displayed online and in a specific location so posters can be viewed throughout the main conference.
ALL accepted posters will be expected to submit a PDF of their poster (no larger than 10mb) before June 1. Additional details will be provided upon acceptance.
ORAL PRESENTATIONS – General Information
Oral presentations are 15 minutes in duration including 5 minutes for discussion with the audience. Abstracts will be 300 words or less in length. While references and figures are a usual component of a full oral presentation, do not include them in the 300-word abstract. Abstracts will be reviewed by the Review Committee for quality and relevance.
ALL accepted orals will be expected to submit a video of their presentation before June 1. Additional details will be provided upon acceptance.
The deadline for abstract submission is February 1, 2022.
Although you may submit as many abstracts as you wish, it is unlikely that more than one oral presentation or poster per presenter can be accepted due to scheduling complexities at the in-person meeting.
