STE Summer Conference
Call for Proposals
WKU School of Teacher Education Summer Conference
Student Agency; Motivation, Engagement & Voice
This year’s program, “Student Agency; Motivation, Engagement & Voice”, focuses on the critical importance of students being self-reliant learners. Content-area teachers are now charged with making sure that their students are motivated, engaged and have voice in the learning process. The WKU STE Summer Conference will emphasize student agency and encourage co-presentation with teachers and students.
The 2016 School of Teacher Education Summer Conference is dedicated to offering professional development, Action Research presented by WKU Graduate Students, Makerspace engagement activities, and practical applications focused on Student Agency.
WKU faculty, students, area practitioners, and administrators are invited to submit proposals for co-presentations with students (40 minutes). All proposals will be reviewed by the program committee for relevance to conference theme as well as variety and innovation of proposals. There are three types of presentations that can be offered in the 40 minute segments:
- Concurrent Sessions: in-room presentations with a small audience (Presentation presenters will be provided a PC computer, speakers, and projector. However, presenters are welcome to bring their own laptop.)
- Panel Sessions: More than one presentation and Presenter is possible on the same or more than one topic.
- Makerspace Sessions: in-room engagement driven activities centered around hands-on, real world, curriculum-embedded experiences that can be implemented in the school setting
Submission accepted: April 5 - May 15
