The February 1 deadline for breakout session proposals has passed, and we have received an outstanding number of submissions. However, you may still submit a proposal to be put on a waiting list. We may accept additional proposals as openings arise in the schedule over the next couple of months.
Share your experiences and knowledge to help illustrate what works, what doesn't, how and why, in the field of restorative practices.
No formal papers are required, but you may opt to share your slides and handouts on our website. Accepted presenters receive a reduced registration rate.
We are seeking proposals for sessions in three formats:
Share (50 minutes): Present information about an important project, study, program or story through lecture, presentation slides and/or video. A "Share" session may include a brief amount of time for audience participation and questions, but if you would like to run circles or other interactive processes, please consider presenting a longer "Teach" or "Engage" session.
Teach (100 minutes): Teach participants about a specific skill or process, or explore theory and concepts at a level deeper than the introductory. A "Teach" session should focus on meeting two or three learning objectives and may include a brief introductory and/or closing circle and a question and answer period.
Engage (100 minutes): Lead a discussion or facilitate a group process around a topic of interest related to restorative practices. An "Engage" session should explore the collective experience of participants as it relates to this topic, with no skill building or instructional elements.
We recommend that you record your answers in a text document before you complete the actual form.
