Important Information and Dates
Your Conference Planning Team seeks Presenters willing to share their PASSION for teaching and learning. Sorry if there might have been confusion, but TRADITIONAL 40 minutes sessions are still in place. We are asking Presenters that might be interested in condensing their often vast research, techniques, and best practices, into a DYNAMIC 20-minute talk, to selection the TED Talk Selection. The Conference Planning Team will assemble teams of Presenters according to their selected strand, much like a TED talk. We ask Presenters to excite conference attendees to dive in with the core messages of their work and accomplishments, to inspire attendees to utilize your knowledge and techniques in their work as educators, and to inspire them to consider this conference as the beginning of continued communication and collaboration.
