Call for Proposals
To our Adult Education Colleagues...
OTAN invites you to submit a proposal to present at the upcoming Technology and Distance Learning Symposium, March 3-4, at the Chula Vista Adult School. This event will be both in-person and accessed virtually.
This is an opportunity to share best practices, engaging strategies, and other resources or to facilitate a lively discussion with fellow practitioners related to one or more of the Category Strands listed below. Share your talent and perspective with others! TDLS promises to bring the adult educator community together to collaborate and build capacity.
All presenters and participants will have login credentials for the TDLS event. If your proposal is accepted, please be sure to complete your presenter profile and upload a photo when prompted to complete your presenter account.
Presenter information and training will be provided later. Be sure to provide an email address you check frequently for presenter and OTAN communications.
The deadline to submit a proposal is December 19th, 2022.
Please consider one of the following presentation formats when submitting your proposal:
- Demonstration – Demonstrate and explain a tech tool, technique, or strategy, while allowing time for participant questions and interaction.
- Follow-along workshop – Present a tech tool, technique, or strategy, while participants follow along on their devices and mirror what the presenter is doing.
A panel or facilitated discussion is meant to be an open forum, allowing presenters and participants to discuss a specific topic of interest to the field. A panel or facilitated discussion proposal needs to include a key topic and a set of facilitated questions that the presenter(s) will use to guide participant conversation.
Note: Vendor sessions are not accepted. However, agencies/presenters are welcome to invite vendors to partner and present successful use of products. The teacher should be the lead presenter and the vendor representative should be a co-presenter.
