About Workshop Proposals
All sessions are 90 minutes in length and will be held on either Thursday, April 7 or Friday, April 8, 2011. Workshops generally average 20-30 attendees. All presenters are expected to register for the conference and will be offered the early-bird rate until the full conference rate applies.
In writing your proposal, please keep in mind the primary audiences for this conference:
- K-12 Educators
- Students (elementary, middle, high school, and college)
- Community Partners
- Scientists and Stewards
- Classroom Transformation
- Student Achievement
- Civic Contributions
- Global Learning
The Service-Learning Showcase will be held on Thursday, April 7th from 12:15 p.m. – 2:15 p.m. Showcases will be set up as table top displays on a 6-foot table. Students are encouraged to staff their showcase. Strong showcases should show ties to curriculum, and include reflection components, youth voice and community partnerships. The showcase should effectively describe the impact the program has on its community and how the initiative is unique and replicable for conference attendees.
