The Global Education Benchmark Group welcomes proposals for sessions at the 2019 GEBG Global Educators Conference hosted by Pace Academy in Atlanta, Georgia from April 4th-6th, 2019.
The Global Educator’s Conference is open to anyone interested in global education, and will address critical issues in the field with an emphasis on global curriculum development, global competency skills and assessments, institutional leadership, off-campus program development and risk management, current trends in the field, and more.
Ideal proposals will demonstrate innovative pedagogical approaches, offer well-defined academic and/or experiential models, institutional best practices, highlight assessment tools and/or use of technology, include practical takeaways and articulate how the audience will be engaged.
Requirements: : In lieu of the $475/$575 registration fee, the primary presenter will pay a reduced fee of $375. Any co-presenters will be required to pay the full conference registration fee. Any non-school entities submitting a proposal must have a primary co-presenter from an education institution. We prefer no more than 2 presenters per presentation and typically accept no more than one presentation per school or accompanying organization.
Sessions: This year we will have 3 session types. A majority of the session blocks will remain as 60 minute conference presentations, we will have one block of 25 minute Highlight presentations that will focus on curricular examples within schools, and we will have one block of 90 minute, interactive Deep Dive sessions that will allow for participants to engage more fully. Please allow for at least 10 minutes of questions in each session. Audio/visual equipment will be provided for each session. Presenters will be responsible for their own laptops and associated hardware.
Application Information: The deadline for proposal submission is November 15, 2018. Applicants will be notified by December 15, 2018.
