21 October Ed Forum Proposals Due Nov. 4 October 21, 2016By Erin Cogswell General blog, PTK Catalyst 0 Tweet The deadline to submit Educational Forum proposals for PTK Catalyst 2017 is 5 p.m. CT on Friday, November 4. Educational Forums are a staple of Phi Theta Kappa conventions; this year, we’re changing things up a bit, and we want you to be a part of it. The majority of our Educational Forums at PTK Catalyst 2017 will be in a TED Talk-style format that last 30 minutes. Each session should include a short presentation, a collaborative activity and a group discussion. There are two tracks: one on PTK Programs, and one on personal and professional development. Advisors, we invite you to submit proposals for presentations. Members may be included as co-presenters. An advisor-based Proposal Review Committee will review the presentations. Once their initial review is completed, Phi Theta Kappa staff will review the highest-rated proposals to finalize the selections that will ensure a comprehensive and balanced PTK Catalyst 2017 program. All those submitting a proposal will be notified of their stats by mid-December. Below are some potential topics we’ve thought of for each track that may inspire you: PTK Programs Track Increasing Membership Acceptance Honors in Action Project College Project Competitive Edge C4 (Community College Completion Corps) Scholarship Success Creative Funding for Chapters and Regions Motivating Members Getting Engaged in Your Region Personal/Professional Development Track Leadership Skills — especially those using the Society’s Leadership Development Studies curriculum Managing Conflict Emotional Intelligence Career Advice Transferring to a Four-Year College Professional Etiquette Public Speaking Utilizing Social Media Computer Coding Personal Finances Healthy You (Managing Time, Managing Stress, Exercise/Nutrition, etc.) Of course, we’re open to new ideas, and we want to hear from you.
