  3. We invite papers for the following:
    *A co-sponsored session with SARTS: teaching through music: what does it mean to privilege a musical text rather than to use it as illustration.
    *Service Learning 2.0: Developments in service learning: engaged learning, working with community partners, etc.
    *Using technology practically: How can we use classical technology (like PowerPoint) and new technologies (like e-readers, iPhones, etc.) in practical ways in the classroom? How can these devices aid in assessment and in student learning in critical thinking skills?
