Call for proposals for D&D student conference in March 2011

New NCDD member Jack Becker shared this announcement with the NCDD Discussion List yesterday, and I thought I’d share it here.  I attended the first student conference (“Connecting the Dots”) in Alabama last spring, and it was a great event.  I gave a workshop on NCDD’s Engagement Streams, which was a big hit!  This year, all presenters are asked to cover their travel, lodging and registration expenses, though I’m not sure how much registration will be (it was very reasonable for the first conference).

The Citizens’ Toolbox: What’s in Yours?

This is a call for proposals for our second annual national student conference in Oxford, Ohio, March 16-19, 2011. Proposals due Friday, February 4, 2011.

Please save the date and join us at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio for the second annual national student conference on:

  • Dialogue and Deliberation
  • Campus and Community
  • Action Plans and Problem Solving and
  • Practical Application of Skills

This year’s conference theme is “The Citizens’ Toolbox: What’s in Yours?”. Continuing from last year’s successful Connect the Dots conference at Point Clear, Alabama, this conference already has a wonderful schedule planned with an exciting group of students, academics, and practitioners in attendance. Please consider hosting a workshop or learning exchange, or traveling with a poster to informally present your work!
