To present at the 2019 ATL conference, you must:

  • Register and pay the conference fee
  • Arrange and pay for travel and lodging
  • Agree to present on the day and time you are assigned
  • Provide clear and readable handouts (including print-outs of presentation slides)
  • Upload accessible electronic versions of handouts and presentation materials (i.e. PowerPoint presentations) to a Canvas shell on or before April 22, 2019, for inclusion in the Canvas shell for the conference participants.

Cost prohibits us from providing computers or projection devices; therefore, we do not provide them. If your presentation involves PowerPoint or other presentation software, you must provide your own computer and projector. A screen will be provided.

  • Always aim to do several things at once — for example, a session that includes a handout on growth mindset might use strategies from Reading Apprenticeship. Ground your presentation in theory, research, data, and/or established best practices.
  • Market your session with a creative (yet accurate) title and a succinct, practitioner-focused description.
  • Refer to Accessible Presentations Guidelines for some tips on preparing for and giving your presentation. Check out SBCTC's Accessibility 101 lessons and guides for more details on creating accessible documents and PowerPoints.
  • We encourage you to openly license your presentation materials, preferably with a Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) license 4.0 or higher.Check outOpen Washington: Learn OER for more details on Creative Commons license.
  • Bring 50 handouts and business cards.
  • Ensure that you send accessible, electronic versions of your presentation materials for inclusion in the Canvas shell.
