SUBMIT YOUR PROPOSAL TO PRESENT AT THE CONFERENCE.

The Conference Committee is interested in proposals that represent the interests of institutions of varying size and discipline, as well as the experiences of informal education professionals at all career levels. Breakout session proposals should include interactive, practical, and replicable content, and should support educators’ professional development and skill-building.  Shorter video-and-conversation Expo proposals are being accepted to engage conference participants in conversations about your topic.
