Session selection

The AiTC Education Planning Committee is looking for a wide range of session topics, including new approaches to existing models. Consider these attributes when developing a session proposal:

  • Clear examples, lessons, and ideas.
  • Thoughtful learning objectives.
  • Interactive topics.
  • Get creative with your session title.
  • Content that is accurate and relevant to different types of attendees.
  • Alternative teaching methods as opposed to traditional session lectures.
  • Please note in your proposal if your session is interactive and will need WIFI access.
  • Communicate any audiovisual needs in your proposal.
  • Submit an electronic copy of the final presentation by June 9, 2023.
  • Ensure all deadlines are met.

The AiTC Education Planning Committee will review and select all keynote and breakout sessions included in the conference schedule. While proposal submission does not guarantee selection, we will explore opportunities to include the wealth of expertise represented in proposals received.

Please note, overlapping of spotlight themes and topics may occur and does not impact your session selection.

The AiTC Education Planning Committee has final decision on session schedule arrangement. If there is a specific date and/or time that cannot work for you, please include this information in your submission proposal email for consideration.
