Accepting Proposals

ASCD is now accepting proposals for concurrent sessions at our Leadership Summit to be held December 13-16, 2021 where we will explore the theme of Lead to Flourish: Serving the Whole Educator & Whole Child.

What Does it Mean to Lead so the Whole Child and Whole Educator Flourish?

It calls for creating engaging and challenging learning experiences that will prepare students for the future of work and societal changes; creating healthy and safe environments where students and adults feel physically and emotionally nourished, respected, and treated with dignity; and caring for each person by supporting their unique academic, social, and emotional needs.

ASCD is seeking session proposals that support the conditions for creating thriving learning environments centered around the whole child and whole educator.

NOTE: We are asking presenters to participate in the live event in December (60 minute presentation) AND provide a pre-recorded version of your session to be included in a digital package to be launched in early 2022 which would be offered to people that cannot attend the live event. More details to be provided after acceptance.
