Please consider the following session guidelines when shaping your proposal. These criteria will influence the selection of sessions to be presented.

NCSC Attendees Want:

  1. Sessions with a greater depth of content

  2. Best practices and tools that can be implemented by attendees

  3. Sessions designed to engage and educate attendees

  4. Differentiated content for veteran teachers and school leaders

  5. Sessions showcasing cutting edge innovations in the field


NCSC Attendees Do NOT Want:

  1. Sales pitches or promotion of products or services within sessions

  2. Sessions with basic content

  3. Sessions that don’t include practitioners as presenters

NOTE: 2014 attendees will be asked in the session evaluation if a sales pitch was directly made or implied. If over 25% of respondents indicate a sales pitch was made in a particular session, the presenters will not be permitted to present at future conferences
