Present a Workshop at the 2013 Convention
NAAE is accepting proposals for workshops to be presented at the 2013 NAAE Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada, December 3-7, 2013, relating to topics appropriate for middle, secondary and post-secondary educators of agricultural education. Workshops may be presented on, but are not limited to, the following areas: Classroom instruction techniques, technology in the classroom, technical agricultural information, integration of academics, exceptional instructional materials, research pertinent and applicable to the classroom, specific topical areas, etc.
At last year’s convention, our members consistently requested the following topics listed below. They also requested that workshops integrate science, math, and technology as well as hands-on activities and labs that can be conducted in their own classes. These are member requested topics; we do not plan to limit your RFP’s to just these topics.
We are open to all submissions!
