Your Workshop Proposal
For now, you need only submit a basic proposal of your idea. If your application is accepted, you will be paired with a Conference Advisor who will support you as you structure your workshop and refine your ideas during the months leading up to the conference.

Your workshop should focus on a particular promising practice that is being used successfully in one or more transfer schools that you have personal experience with. You should plan to share information on the practice along with evidence from your experience with it and provide an opportunity for workshop participants to explore ways they might implement the practice in their own schools.

Student Involvement Encouraged
Student participation in past years' workshops has provided valuable insights and perspective about student engagement and school improvement. We are eager to bring in additional student voice to our workshops and encourage you to consider inviting a few of your students to:
- Present on their experiences with the practice you have been using;
- Co-facilitate a portion of the workshop; or
- Join in the discussions as participants to share their perspectives.

Please let us know if this sounds like something you are interested in doing, even if you don't have any students confirmed yet.

Will your workshop feature any students?
How long will your workshop be?
NOTE: We have filled slots for 90-minute workshops and currently can only accommodate 60-minute sessions. We may request a workshop be offered twice during the day if demand is high.
