  • Individuals from all educational fields are invited to bring their research and practice

Do you need tips on how to write a successful submission?

Here are the top 5 Tips that will help your proposal rise to the top:

  1. Follow the Format – Your proposal will be evaluated based upon the 10 criteria outlined in Rubric which can be found in the Call for Proposals Submission Guidelines. Familiarize yourself with these prior to writing your proposal.

  2. Structure Your Session – Identify the type of session you want to present at the Annual Meeting. When you review the guidelines, pay attention to the AACTE Session Types outlined in the Proposal Guidelines, and ensure your proposal reflects the format of your selected session type.

  3. Speak to the Strand – Address not only the conference theme, but one of the five strands as well. Review AACTE’s official Call for Proposals, select the strand your work best supports, and ensure your proposal answers one or more of its guiding questions.

  4. Talk about Takeaways – Reviewers will be looking for outcomes that attendees can implement, and your proposal should outline what knowledge those attending your session can both gain and apply at their institutions.

  5. Engage Authentically – Prepare a proposal that presents your story and use your proposal to engage attendees and incorporate multiple viewpoints and feedback.
