Welcome! Please fill out the application below as completely as you can.

Thank you for your interest in presenting as part of the Achieve Twin Cities EDTalks 2022-23 season! The application submission deadline is Sunday, August 14, 2022.
The theme for our 2022-23 season is "What's Next?" The challenges of the past three years – including the COVID-19 pandemic, political turmoil, police violence, civil unrest, new campaigns to ban books and whitewash history and limit conversations on sexual identity – have disrupted our communities and systems and laid bare the many issues impacting our young people and public education. In this unprecedented time, it begs the question: What’s next? Where does education go from here?
 
We’re looking for EDTalks speakers who can dive deep into this theme to explore both the problems and the solutions, examine their own successes and challenges, and reflect on the larger cultural, political and emotional shifts of recent years. We want to hear from educators who are innovating in the classroom, administrators who are shaking up systems, community leaders who are reshaping conversations and young people who are experiencing education in new ways that are profoundly affecting their learning and growth, amongst others.
If you have any questions about this application or anything else related to EDTalks, please contact Heidi Draskoci-Fricke at hdraskoci-fricke@achievetwincities.org. We look forward to hearing from you!
