Become a Presenter

Thank you for your interest in becoming a presenter at the 2021 GOCSD Innovation Summit!

Please review the information below and complete your proposal by March 21, 2021. 


All proposals will be evaluated by our committee using this Scoring Guide. To get started, review our Proposal Writing Tips and list of Hot Topics. We will be including a MOCanvas Strand in the program, instead of having a separate MOCanvas event. The Hot Topics list includes some Canvas related topics. 


You can use the guides below as a resource when planning your session.


  • Breakout Session Planning Guide: These 45 minute sessions are a combination of a lecture, featuring audience participation and interaction with the presenter and/or hands-on activities. They may include multiple presenters. 

  • RoundTable Session Planning Guide: This is a small group of participants with a facilitator, gathering in an informal setting for an in-depth discussion on a particular topic for 45 minutes. 


At this point, we are planning for a seated event, but will reevaluate in the Spring if needed. This is a great opportunity to represent your District at a premiere conference and share your innovative and effective strategies, programs and practices.

Please submit your proposal by March 21, 2021. You are welcome to submit multiple proposals on different topics. Presenters will be notified in April, and at the event receive an exclusive Innovator Bag of Swag, that includes a book from a Keynote speaker or an Innovator T-Shirt.
