Hot Topic

These presentations are on emerging and important topics for social work educators or on topics not covered by other APM presentations. These sessions are selected or invited by the Council on Conferences and Faculty Development (CCFD). All special presentations are held in oral session rooms and are 90 minutes in length.

Submission Requirements

A prescreening step is required for all Hot Topic proposals. Interested persons are to submit the following four items to apm@cswe.org for review by the CCFD. 

  1. A 50-word overview/description of the proposed topic
  2. A brief explanation addressing how that topic qualifies as an emerging and important topic for social work educators that would not be addressed in the peer-reviewed format of proposals assigned to one of the 40 Tracks
  3. A presentation format for the 90-minute session
  4. Names of proposed presenters for the Hot Topic session
