  • September 10, 2021 – Deadline for Lead Presenter registration

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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
