AACC is accepting the submissions in four (4) categories:
Preconvention Workshops – AACC will accept a few preconvention workshop submissions. Workshop submissions must focus on a current trend and/or issue in community colleges and incorporate learning opportunities that participants can take back to their home campuses.
EDTalk – Based on the famous TED Talks, AACC is accepting requests for speakers for its EDTalks to present great, well-formed innovative higher education ideas. The presentations must be 18 minutes or less. The EDTalk must address one of the three categories:
- The big idea - The talk that make one or two very strong points to support student success
- The tech demo - A look at some new technology that supports student success.
- The small idea - These talks are not about one big, world-changing idea, but instead a very engaging take on an interesting topic impacting community college education.
Forum Session - Traditional lecture format with question-and-answer sessions. Speakers are requested to use only half of the allocated time for the presentation, including how they wish to engage the AACC community in their work. The second half of the session should focus on conversations about next steps, engagement with the community, and clarification of points raised during the presentation.
Working Session - Creative problem solvers gather to address a specific problem. These sessions focus can focus on organizational strategy, that would benefit from a collective, dynamic solution approach.
