Call for Session and Ignite Presentation Speakers
Submission deadline is Friday, February 4th.
Share your experience and insights with EE peers by presenting a session at the 17th Annual Idaho Environmental Education Conference, hosted by the Idaho Environmental Education Association (IdEEA). The conference is Friday and Saturday, March 3 – 4, 2016 in Boise.
Following committee proposal review and selection, all applicants will be contacted the week of February 10th. We seek session proposals on educationally sound, useable, Idaho-related resources, especially those connected to the theme Connecting Communities and Classrooms: STEM and a Whole Lot More.
Presentations should be insightful, engaging, integrative, or inspiring. Conference participants learn from outstanding accomplishments, successful projects, and valuable resources. Please consider sharing your expertise and experience. Possible topics include, but are not limited to: aspects of Idaho ecosystems, STEM education, meeting Common Core and Idaho Science Standards through EE, Service Learning, experiences with community educators in the classroom, and fostering environmental education in early childhood.
Talk Sessions: 45 minute concurrent sessions are held Friday and Saturday afternoons. Each presentation will be assigned to a classroom.
Ignite Presentations: Ignite is a fast-paced event where speakers are allowed 20 slides, which advance every 15 seconds whether the speaker is ready or not. That adds up to 5 minutes to share your knowledge and enthusiasm with the audience. All registrants will attend the Ignite presentations on Friday in the afternoon.
Poster Sessions: Great for students, poster sessions are typically an hour or two. The presenter stands near their poster which describes a project, research, or lesson. They have informal conversations with passersby during the session.
Speakers are encouraged to register for the conference and receive the benefits of its educational and networking opportunities. Registration is not required, speakers may attend for their presentations only.
