Ohio Deans Compact 11th Annual Statewide Conference
(in collaboration with OCTEO)

Call for Concurrent Session Proposals
The Ohio Deans Compact, in partnership with OCTEO, extends an invitation to institutions of higher education, P12 districts and schools, professional associations, state and regional personnel, and others to submit proposals to offer concurrent sessions at the 11th Annual Statewide Conference. This year’s theme – Bridging the P20 Divide: Working Together to Improve Learning Opportunities and Outcomes for ALL Children and Youth – reflects the Compact’s mission to support the preparation and professional development of equity-minded educators committed to improving learning opportunities and outcomes for all children and youth in Ohio.

Concurrent sessions will be held on the afternoon of Thursday, March 14, 2024. Each presentation should involve a combination of presentation and discussion. The Compact seeks proposals on the following priority areas but will consider submissions focused on other topics:
  • Higher Education-District Partnership Models for Diversifying the Educator Workforce
  • Evidence-based Literacy Practices Aligned with Ohio's Plan to Raise Literacy Achievement
  • Inclusive Educator Preparation Program Models
  • Higher Education-District Partnerships to Provide High-Dosage Tutoring to Struggling Learners
  • Higher Education-District Partnerships to Advance Postsecondary Options for All Learners
  • Tiered Service Delivery Models (e.g., MTSS, PBIS) for Providing Core Instruction and Supports for All Learners
  • Higher Education-District Partnerships to Improve Services to Students with Low Incidence Sensory Disabilities
  • Models to Address Teacher Shortages
  • Models to Support the Preparation and Professional Development of Inclusive Instructional Leaders

Please use this survey to complete and submit your proposal to offer a concurrent session. Proposals are due by February 2, 2024.
