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-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.
Build-a-Lesson sessions are 90-minute guided hands-on concurrent sessions that address all areas of the curriculum and appeal to a variety of teachers. Sessions may be led 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. The objective of these sessions is for participants to leave with a learning activity for use with their staff and students.
Corporate Room Sessions Looking to showcase your product or service with a one-hour session at the CUE Fall Conference in American Canyon? 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 also be 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.
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.
