We are now welcoming applications to apply to present at the VANAS Teachers Conference! This year we are looking for two types of presentations: Workshops and Ignite Sessions. This year’s VANAS conference will include two traditional workshop sessions, and an ignite session. Please ensure that you have your superintendent’s approval to present at VANAS before you apply. The deadline to apply is October 16th.
Presenters prepare 20 slides on a topic of their choice, which automatically advance every 15 seconds. Slides should be mostly images. The result is a fast and fun presentation which lasts just 5 minutes. The presenter will then facilitate a 50-minute discussion on the ignite topic. It must be connected with the VANAS theme or with current educational research and practice.
Workshops will be 1 hour in length. These are an opportunity for you to share your expertise with your colleagues, ideally through a hands-on, participatory session.
