iNACOL Webinar | 2/4: iNACOL Symposium 2019 – A Primer On Getting Selected To Present

A webinar from these neo-liberals.

To view this email as a web page, go here.
SPECIAL EDITION WEBINAR 

iNACOL Webinar Presents a Primer on Submitting Your Proposal to Present at the 2019 iNACOL Symposium

Monday, February 4, 2019
3 p.m. to 4 p.m. ET (register)

On Monday, February 4, 2019, from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. ET, iNACOL (@nacol) will host a webinar to provide insights on the request for proposal process for presenting at the annual iNACOL Symposium.

Interested in presenting at the iNACOL Symposium in 2019? Before getting started with the brainstorming process to create a presentation proposal, iNACOL will share key points that will help your session stand out in an upcoming webinar. There are many ways to design sessions that will generate meaningful collaboration, foster engagement and share knowledge. For the upcoming iNACOL Symposium Request for Presentation Proposal (RFP) process, it is important to include how you plan to incorporate interactivity with, and among, attendees, as well as how your session will dig deep into critical topics, in your RFP submission.

Join this webinar to learn about the Symposium RFP process, hear tips to getting proposals selected to present, and discover ways to improve interactivity in your session.

A few ideas to consider:

  • Engage in conversations to share knowledge, lessons learned and best practices; and/or model competency-based, blended or online approaches (i.e., no “front of the classroom”). Avoid a “stand and deliver” session model.
  • What’s your hook? Consider starting the session with a short ice-breaker. Capture what attendees hope to learn from your session.
  • Gauge audience interest and level of understanding on your topic at the beginning of your session and tailor your session accordingly.
  • Be sure your proposal targets specific nuances of implementation that dig below the surface and unpack lessons learned and practices, rather than being very general in nature.
