2021 Schools of the Future Conference - Call For Proposals
The Schools of the Future Conference, which will take place on October 27, 28, & 29, 2021, seeks proposals related to pedagogy and best teaching practices to help educators prepare learners for the future. The conference will once again be offered virtually with the possibility of a hybrid component, if conditions permit. We ask that you take into account the virtual nature of the conference, as you develop your proposed presentation.
Presentations should include innovative trends, while also helping attendees increase their leadership skills and professional competence by providing for an exchange of ideas and solutions. As always, the planning team strives to ensure that all content is relevant and timely, especially given all that has transpired over the past year. We encourage you to consider all that has been learned during this extraordinary time and apply those takeaways to your presentation. The goal of SOTF, as always, is to deliver a conference that helps inform best practices in education going forward. To that end, the review committee will pay particular attention to whether proposals are reflective, in some way, of the teaching and learning environment we now find ourselves in. In doing so, the SOTF conference, along with selected presenters, will create a community of learning that will help educators improve the quality of education for all students.
All sessions will be recorded and made available to conference attendees via a secure site for up to 3 months following the event. By submitting a proposal, you are granting permission to record your presentation and make it available to conference attendees. A copy of the recording will be made available to all presenters, following the conference.
Deadline to submit proposals is Sunday, April 4, 2021
Notifications will be sent by May 7, 2021
Presenter Registration and Discount Information
If your proposal is selected, the Primary Presenter will receive a complimentary registration for the 2021 SOTF Conference. One additional co-presenter will receive a 50% discount on the conference fee in effect at the time of registration. All additional co-presenters must pay 100% of the conference fee in effect at the time of registration, if they wish to attend the conference.
Presentations with Students
If an adult will serve as the primary presenter with the presentation incorporating student voice, then please proceed with submitting a proposal using this form. If, however, the presentation will be delivered by students, with a teacher serving as a point-person or facilitator, then please wait for the Student Call for Proposals which will be announced in May.
Student presenters (K-12th graders) will not be charged a registration fee (maximum of 4 students per session).
Please note that the conference does not cover any additional expenses related to attending or presenting at the conference (travel expenses, equipment, supplies, etc.).
