A) Research proposals involve a question of inquiry that focuses on the results of an actual investigation, a concern within a framework of thought or of investigations involving a research methodology. Proposals should demonstrate originality of thought and the value of the research in relation to the field of dance and dance education.
B) In-practice proposals demonstrate research in application or a practical approach that supports the everyday experiences of the dance educator. Proposals can range from anecdotal evidence to examples of lesson plans.
It is your choice as to whether you would like your proposal reviewed in a blind or non-blind process. It does not effect your chances of successful acceptance to present.
