Opening Week Call for Proposals

Dear Colleagues,

Planning for Opening Week is well underway and it will include concurrent professional learning sessions for all employees. Based on feedback we received from Yvonne Ortiz, our AVID for Higher Education Coach, the theme for Opening Week will be how to support learners in building their student identity. In your work, you may provide such support in a variety of different ways:  ensuring access for all students, fostering community between students, helping students navigate their pathway from school to career, or enhancing students’ self-awareness and confidence.

If you would like to share your practices and experiences related to this topic – or just provide updates or information from your area – please consider submitting a proposal for a concurrent session during opening week. We will ask each presenter to hold each session twice so that attendees can minimize conflicts. The available presentation times are:

Friday, Sept. 16th:  10:30am – 12:00pm
Friday, Sept. 16th:  1:00 – 2:30pm
Monday, Sept. 19th:  10:30am – 12:00pm
Monday, Sept. 19th:  1:00 – 2:30pm

Please submit a proposal (not more than a paragraph) for your concurrent session presentation, workshop or facilitated conversation, including your name, a title for the session, your preferred session times, and what kind of room you would need to Bayta Maring ( by August 1st.

Thank you!
