Professional Development Conference
Call for Presentations - Presentation Submission
Proposals Due May 1, 2015
The 2015 CTE Professional Development Conference in Bismarck, North Dakota, August 10-12-2015.
Conference “Concurrent Feature Workshops” will be held on Tuesday, August 11, 2015 from 10:15 am to 4:15 pm. We are actively seeking presenters who are enthusiastic about education, innovation and sharing knowledge. If you are implementing innovative teaching strategies including items related to college and career readiness, the common core, project based learning, and technology; we invite you to submit a proposal to present a “Concurrent Feature Workshop.” These 45 minute workshops are intended to enhance skills and broaden perspectives of the participants and can be hands-on in nature. Some sessions may be considered for two workshop time blocks for a total of 105 minutes. This year we are also introducing roundtable sessions which are informal sessions where participants are literally seated around the table for a short presentation and discussion. The presenter has 20 minutes to present his/her material then participants move to another table. During one session slot, the presenter will give the presentation two times. No AV technology is available for roundtable sessions.

Consideration for each selected session will be based on the topic content, instructor qualifications, and availability of facilities.
One honorarium is available to each non-commercial eligible presenter for a Concurrent Feature Workshop that is conducted at the 2015 CTE Professional Development Conference on Tuesday, August 11, 2015. If more than one presenter, the honorarium will be prepared for Presenter 1 listed on the proposal form. (A 45 and 20 (x2) minute session will receive a $100 honorarium while a 105 minute session will receive a $225 honorarium). Those presenters being paid by their institution will not be paid an honorarium since it would be classified as a double payment.
