Reminder: Preconference workshop proposals due September 1

The ICED conference team is hard at work to create the best conference possible. The only thing missing is your preconference proposal!

Why should you submit a preconference proposal? Preconference workshops offer the opportunity to make a big difference in the practice of international educational development. You will be able to delve into a specific concept/topic/tool with plenty of time to explore details and offer hands-on practice and application of skills. While we can’t promise every pre-conference submission will be accepted, the preconference workshop list is one of the most-visited pages of the conference website, so it’s a great way to disseminate your contributions!

And, if your proposal gets included in the program, you will be able to attend another preconference workshop for free!

Please visit the conference website to submit your proposal for an engaging 3-hour workshop with hands-on applications.
Proposal Deadline is: September 1, 2017.

Call for volunteers

ICED conferences succeed because of the generosity of many thoughtful volunteers. We are looking for volunteers in three critical areas:

  • A large team of session reviewers across multiple areas of expertise.
  • Volunteers on social media platforms to amplify all conference communications.
  • Volunteers at the registration desk during the conference.
