VASCD's 2017 Annual Conference will be held in Williamsburg on November 30 and December 1. Our theme is "RE:Thinking". Conference sessions should relate to developing students' and educators' thinking, problem-solving, and decision-making skills. We are particularly interested in sessions that emphasize one or more of Virginia's "Five Cs": collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, communication, and citizenship.
Exciting, inspiring work is going on in Virginia's schools every day, and we are anxious for practitioners to share that work through the VASCD conference. We welcome your proposal! Questions should be directed to Conference Chair Julie Myers at email@example.com or to Laurie McCullough at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Proposals must be submitted by July 15. Selections will be made and communicated by August 11. Though the conference schedule has not been finalized, we anticipate that concurrent sessions will be 75 minutes in length.
We value the sharing and cross-pollinating of ideas! Our belief is that all of us have questions and all of us have value to offer; our intention is that presenters as well as those not presenting will have opportunities to interact and share throughout the conference. Presenters may not participate unless they are registered for the conference.
All conference attendees, including presenters, are responsible for the costs associated with conference registration, hotel rooms if needed, and transportation to and from the conference.
