The International Educational Symposium Committee is eager to receive proposal applications for workshops for the 2017 Educational Symposium. Our membership is diverse and we need a variety of workshops to appeal to those who are actively engaged in education, as well as, those who are retired educators. Perhaps you have presented a workshop in one of these settings: school, community, another organization, educational conference, S/P/N Convention or will be a presenter at a Regional Conference this summer. Please consider sharing your knowledge, insights and talents with your sisters in New Orleans in 2017. Which category would best describe the workshop you could present?
Personal Interests – book talks, personal enrichment, cultural exchange, health and wellness, etc.
Alpha Delta Kappa – fraternity education, leadership (including officer training), membership, altruism, world understanding, scholarships, ways and means, etc.
Professional Development – classroom techniques and management, educational issues, S/P/N educational initiatives, Common Core State Standards, National Board Certification, etc.
Workshops will be 60 minutes in length with theater‐style seating. Microphones will be provided for sessions with 50 or more registered attendance. For complete information regarding the workshops, please carefully read the Proposal Application Form.
