Successful proposals will be designed intentionally for participants as learners and will do the following:
- Consider how the session disrupts common ideas about writing centers, celebrates stories, and/or reimagines and realizes the work of writing centers
- Engage the idea/method of story and storytelling
- Describe the moves you will make in the proposed session and how they will engage the audience. Include how you'll forefront accessibility into this session.
Questions to Consider
- What goals do you have for participant-learners? For yourself?
- What will you do in your proposed session?
- How do these actions help you specifically address your stated learning goals?
- How does your presentation disrupt common ideas about writing centers, celebrate writing center stories, and/or (re)imagine the work of writing centers?
