PROPOSAL DESIGN AND ABSTRACT
To present the very best and most relevant content, organized in 15 different Network strands
, NAGC's Annual Convention proposals require a 60 word description that describes the session content to convention attendees and a 250 word description for evaluation purposes.* The 250 word description should include detailed information such as practical application to a particular audience(s), knowledge and tools that attendees will receive, and, if possible, links to background research/theory. Do not include the names of any presenters in the descriptions.
Expert reviewers from the NAGC Networks conduct blind reviews using the Rubric
, which is accessible on this site prior to submission. Network Program Chairs and National Convention Program Committee members finalize the selections to ensure the process is fair, balanced, and broadly representative of the field. You will receive notice via email in April 2018 regarding the status of your proposal submission(s).
*Empirical proposals submitted to the Research & Evaluation Network must include a scientific process description (900 words max).
