Sharing Discovery Education at a Conference?

After four years of the DEN we know two things about conference season.

1) People love sessions about Discovery content.

2) Our STARs are always shining.

So, we want to recognize the awesome presentations our STAR Discovery Educators lead at conferences around the globe.

If you are accepted to present at a conference we want to support you in the following ways:

Fame and fortune:  we will advertise your session(s) on the blog and website.  In some cases where Discovery has a corporate room or booth we’ll even promote your sessions in our conference materials.

Swag: we will send you a DEN Presenter’s polo that you can wear proudly at the conference.

Materials and prizes:  we will send DE literature and a few prizes to you to give to your attendees.  For example, if you are leading a session about DE Science we can send quickstart guides for everyone.

Sound good?  All we need now is for you to let us know.  As soon as your session is accepted complete this form and we’ll do our best to support you and make you even more famous than you already are.

Here’s a list of conferences and proposal deadlines to get you started.  If we’ve missed any, please leave a comment so we can add them to the list!

    Looks like you copied and pasted this list from last year?

    Either way, SC Ed Tech is 2009 this year, not 2008.

    The Illinois conference has changed it’s name to the ICE Conference 2010. We will accept General concurrent proposals until Oct 1st, and Poster session proposals until Nov 1st. Poster sessions are a great way for new presenters to get started. These sessions are more informal, a great way to network with other educators and share your classroom projects.

    Would this also include a non-tech conference? Like TESOL?

    Are school district conferences eligible? Our district has a Teaching & Learning conference and a Technology Conference.

    Also, what about school conferences? We do a lot of site based conferences throughout the school year.

    Are polos & training materials available for these events?
