Speaker DiscountIf your session is accepted, Schoology will provide a complimentary NEXT conference ticket ($699 value) to the lead presenter.Only lecture and workshop session types are eligible for the speaker discount.
Session SelectionYou may submit multiple proposals. Sessions will be read and scored by a committee of peers and Schoology staff. Our NEXT committee evaluates each submission based on:
-- Strength of Content—Is the proposal or content well-developed? Does the potential presenter appear to be an expert in the topic? Is it a unique or a creative way to convey the information? -- Usefulness to Intended Audience—Do you have a specific audience in mind? Does the proposal apply to a wide variety of attendees? Does the proposal target a specific role? Is it a "deep dive" into a specific topic? -- Relevance and Value—Are their clear, concise objectives that attendees can expect to learn from the session? Do you cover how these can be achieved through Schoology?
