Deadline approaching for 2018 Families Learning Conference session proposals

Feb 15, 2018


alling family engagement practitioners, educators, librarians, community stakeholders, and others who work to eradicate poverty through education solutions for families: NCFL invites you to share your best practices and effective strategies for engaging families in learning at the 2018 Families Learning Conference. The Call for Proposals to present a session closes Thursday, March 1.

Presenters enjoy many benefits including:

  • Half off the regular registration rate for the lead presenter of each session;
  • The opportunity to raise awareness of your organization among approximately 1,000 attendees and highlight what works in your community;
  • The opportunity to enhance your own work by exploring a variety of sessions;
  • The chance to build your professional learning network and find inspiration by networking with fellow attendees, including educators, philanthropists, thought leaders, and policymakers.

The Families Learning Conference is such a valuable event for educators, family literacy staff, administrators, and community-based organization staff because of our unique focus on engaging all members of the family. This focus equips attendees with education solutions to issues commonly encountered while working with under-served families; practical ideas to take back and use right away in the classroom; and ideas for community-based partnerships to broaden the impact of attendees’ work.

We’ve established six strands of educational content, making it easy for attendees to build their schedules. These strands include topics that focus on: Adult Education, American Indian/Alaskan Native, Early Childhood Education, English Learners, Research and Policy, and Two-Generation Learning. Read more about topics within these strands by clicking here.

The Call for Proposals closes in two weeks. Start your application today!
