Information for Presenters: Step 1

Step 1: Understanding the Education Expo & Submitting a Proposal

The Idea

During this program, you are introduced to several education concepts, some of which really draw your interest. In the process of completing assignments and projects, you may not have the time to deepen your study of an area of interest or passion. The Education Expo is your opportunity to delve into an area of interest, and to share your passion with others. The Education Expo is about you, or you with a small team of your cohort members, delving into that interest or curiosity; becoming a bit of an expert on the topic; and presenting.

2019 provides students with a unique opportunity:

School District 69 representatives were so impressed with last year's event that they would like us to offer the event as the district professional development day on February 19th, 2019. That's right. You will be providing professional development for Qualicum School District.

We know that, at this point, you might feel some trepidation at providing Pro-D to teachers who are already in the profession; but we will provide you with support and help with ideas. If the last three ED EXPOs are any indication of the quality and scope of presentations students in our program can offer, then rest assured that the teachers will love it.

The Format

There are two formats available for the Expo:

  • Stations (We will have a lot of these)
  • Presentations

Below

2016: Stations

Station/Booth: The format is expected to appear much like a Science Fair or a Home and Garden shows, with a representative from each team presenting at a team station. Each station will have a 10 - 15 minute interactive presentation for participants.

2017, 2018, 2019: Stations & Presentations

Presentation: In a classroom. For those wishing to offer hands-on and interactive workshops. Students will present one - 60 minute session. Participants will sign up for the sessions.

Topic Ideas

Interest Trumps Teams

The old meaning of "Trump" ("a decisive overriding factor"...also called a trump card), not the guy who is currently President of the U.S.

What is different for 2019?

The Pro D Committee at SD69 has requested:

  • Anything with G Suite (Classroom, Draw, Drive,...)
  • Anything Tech
  • Social Justice
  • Indigeonous Topics
  • But... please do not be limited by this. If your interest is in Movement in the Social Studies Classroom... then propose that.

Please complete the proposal form below.

  • One person on a team fills this in and becomes the contact person for the team.
  • You will need to have two topic choices.
  • Dilemma: What if you are interested in one topic with one team, but your other choice of topics is with a different team? No problem: Fill in one form for each of the teams.
