Submission, Selection, and Registration:

All proposals will be evaluated and chosen by a committee of dual language educators. Not all proposals will be accepted. Historically, La Cosecha receives more proposals than there is room to accommodate. 

 

Lead presenters receive a special registration rate of $     290.00 ($190.00 – virtual). Additionally, there are a limited number of complimentary registration scholarships given to lead presenters who do not have a school or institution that can support their participation. If you would like to apply for a registration scholarship, you must complete the online scholarship application. Complimentary registration scholarship applications must be submitted by August 15, 2022 . Click here to complete your application. Applications will be reviewed, selected and recipients contacted by September 6, 2022. We are only accepting applications electronically. No scholarships will be awarded after September 6th. Note: due to COVID19 and the updated pricing for La Cosecha, we are no longer offering discounted rates for Co-presenters. Click here for more information on current registration rates.

Tips to strengthen your proposal/session:

  • Plan for best use of time.  Session times are 75 minutes. Participants appreciate opportunities to interact with the content and to ask questions of the facilitator(s). Please plan accordingly.

  • Explain how your topic relates to dual language education. Don’t assume the selection committee will clearly understand the connections – explain!

  • Topics relevant to classroom instruction are highly desirable.  The committee is always looking for presentations by Classroom Teachers

  • Be as specific as possible regarding the targeted audience (i.e., grade level, position, etc.). Targeted audience = educators and/or community members who will benefit the most from your session. 

  • Respect the limited space for session title (100 characters/~10 word max) and descriptor (400 characters/~50 word max). 

  • The title and the description must be in the language of the presentation. Note: Presentations in non-English program languages are highly encouraged.

  • There are NO juried commercial presentations. Presentations that promote a specific “product” are rarely selected. Commercial presentations slots are limited and reserved exclusively for conference sponsors.

  • When possible, align your topic with the most appropriate Guiding Principle strand. 

  • Choose the most appropriate Conference Strand(s) for your session (Note: there may be more than one appropriate topic strand). This will assist the committee in selecting sessions for the program and assist participants in choosing the sessions they will attend.

  • Presentations that are pre-approved to be pre-recorded, need to be recorded by the presenter and submitted to the planning committee by October 3rd.
