ISA has long had an interest in offering specialty courses for faculty and graduate students to stay current with latest trends in methodologies, teaching practices, and other topics in the field. But we never had a good framework in the past to regularize the process.

We are excited to report that ISA's Governing Council recently approved a new category of specialty courses called Career Courses for ISA's annual conference. Instructors can submit proposals for these Career Courses as specialty submissions through the New Orleans conference site; they are due by June 1st. The Professional Development Committee will evaluate them and select four to be held at our New Orleans convention. Selected instructors will receive a stipend for teaching the course, and interested participants will be able to register this fall for course they want to join.

Starting today, the submission form is open! Do you have an idea to teach a course on new methodologies, teaching strategies, software, or something else? We'd love to hear from you! Just submit your proposal through this site by the 1st. Of course, you can find out more about this program under our "Special Convention Programs" area.
