Request for Proposals - Academies of Nashville Institute
The Academies of Nashville is accepting workshop and seminar proposals for its 2018 Academies of Nashville summer institute, which will be held July 18 and 19 at Trevecca Nazarene University's Boone Business Center.

All proposals will be peer-reviewed to ensure that proposals chosen for the 2018 AON Institute reflect innovation and diversity in research, practice, education, and professional development. The Academies of Nashville will notify everyone who submits a proposal of its acceptance or rejection by April 30. It is the responsibility of the proposal submitter to notify other individuals named in the proposal (if any) of Academies of Nashville’s proposal decision.

Proposal Tips:
-All are encouraged to submit proposals that are noncommercial in nature.
-All submissions should be designed to incorporate interactivity with the audience. Select the delivery format that engages participants in discussion about your content and makes it relevant to them.
-Clearly articulate intended learning outcomes: the specific knowledge to be acquired as a result of attending your session.

Delivery Choices:
We encourage you to consider a presentation format that will engage your colleagues in discussion and learning beyond the simple dissemination of information. Sessions may follow one of these formats, or you may suggest an alternative format:

-Debate Point-Counterpoint
This format is intended to get people talking and create open minds with fresh perspectives. Select a thought-provoking topic and create a panel with two-opposing viewpoints. Add a third panelist to serve as moderator, frame the conversation, and engage the audience.

-Facilitated Content
Presenters become content leaders to share a short information segment and then lead interactive, engaging activities, group discussions, and attendee reflections on how to apply their new knowledge to practice. Session time is divided into 50% content sharing and 50% facilitation using exercises appropriate for large groups with the room set in round tables to maximize engagement.

-Talk Show Panel, Multi-campus Panel
This format must include 2-3 presenters that represent multiple Institutions and perspectives on the same topic. The stage set includes comfortable chairs, no podium and no powerpoint. Panelists create an engaging moderated discussion with dialogue, storytelling, case studies, and lessons learned to help attendees apply concepts to their campus.

-Interactive Presentation
These traditional breakout sessions share topics of community interest using innovative, thought-provoking content blended with audience participation.

-Lightning Talk Session
These micro-presentations are designed to deliver information with focused speed. Propose with a colleague from your institution or another institution to share information on a common topic or propose your topic solo and let the program committee match you with partner presenter.

-Poster Session
Share the outcomes of campus experiences through informal, interactive, brief presentations focused on effective practices, research findings, or technical solutions.

Offered for 120 minutes, workshops provide participants a deeper examination of various topics, facilitated by leaders with extensive experience in those areas. Workshops are highly interactive and give participants the chance to discuss in depth approaches to challenges they are facing - to share solutions and learn strategies.
