Types of Sessions

There are several types of speaker sessions at a CUE conference.  This section describes each category and the review process for each.

Concurrent Sessions 

Concurrent sessions are one or two-hour presentations that address all areas of the curriculum and appeal to a variety of teachers. Sessions may be given by a single speaker, team or panel who can address the needs of the novice user of educational technology as well as the more experienced professional.

Corporate Room Sessions 
Looking to showcase your product or service with a one-hour session at the Fall CUE Conference in Napa Valley? CUE is offering spaces for interested vendors to purchase sessions. The session would allow your corporation to present your product in the best possible light. A projector, screen and a single wired Internet drop is included. Your session(s) will be also included in the conference program/addendum and listed as commercial sessions (must be submitted by published deadlines). Certain sponsorships include sessions.

CUE Tips
These quick, 20-minute presentations focus on emerging and existing innovations to enhance learning, productivity, or understanding. They should be noncommercial, brief, and focus on one or two tips, techniques, or resources. NOTE: CUE Tips presenters do not automatically receive complimentary conference registration. Present 3 or more CUE Tips to recieve complimentary registration.

Other Speaker Information

          Current Topics of Interest to CUE Members

For every conference, the Conference Chair and Speaker Coordinator review the strands for session proposals. Changes are made in the strands to meet current trends and needs of conference attendees. The Conference Committee and CUE Board note areas in which there seems to be a need for information at conferences and ask that good presenters be found if possible. This dynamic exchange of needs and ideas helps to keep conferences fresh and timely. CUE is currently looking for sessions on diversity, Common Core State Standards alignment, standards, Critical Thinking, Communication, Collaboration, Creativity, and assessment analysis, and developing Future Ready schools. Further, we are seeking sessions delving into emerging technologies such as gaming in education, coding/programming, personal learning device, lesson design, and assistive technology.


          CUE Member Preference
CUE Conferences are member-to-member events. Members will be given preference as speakers.

          Tips for Selected Speakers
Once you are ready with your presentation, plan to visit your room before you present and to practice on any equipment you will be using. Presenters only have fifteen minutes prior to the presentation; prepare in advance. The capacity of your room is stated in the acceptance letter. Post your handouts by emailing your URL to the CUE office at gcollins@cue.org.  
Be sure to have fun with the presentation. All of us who volunteer for CUE greatly enjoy your participation.
