Call for Proposals

Thank you for your interest in presenting at the 2015 School Leadership Summit. The conference will be held entirely online Thursday, March 26th, 2015. Everyone is encouraged to submit a presentation proposal, including first-time presenters.

The Process

Proposals can be submitted from January 6th - March 14th, 2015, and we will begin accepting proposals after February 1st. We encourage you to submit your proposal as early as possible because as soon as a proposal is accepted you are given the ability to select from the available presentation times, and the time choices become increasingly limited closer to the event. You may submit more than one proposal, but we will give priority to providing as many presenters the chance to present as possible.

Your presentation proposal, once submitted, will be listed on the Admin 2.0 website, with the opportunity for members of this network to view, comment on, and/or "like" your presentation proposal. This will give you and the other members of this site the chance to share ideas and to make connections before, during, and after the conference. Additionally, it will allow us to gauge the popularity of your topic or approach. It is our intention that all serious proposals be given the opportunity to be presented.

Presentation Guidelines

Presentations should be at least 20 minutes in length, and all sessions must be completed (including Q&A) within one hour. All sessions will be held in Blackboard Collaborate (previously Elluminate/Wimba). Presenters will be responsible for familiarizing themselves with the web conferencing platform. You will have access to a recorded training, as well as live training sessions where you can ask questions. To get started, please visit

All presentations will be recorded and released under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs License. For more information, please visit: By submitting to present, you are agreeing to these terms.

Presentations must be non-commercial. Interest in commercial sponsorship or presentations should be directed to Steve Hargadon at
