Call for Proposals

The Call for Proposals is open now through September 30th, 2020!

You are invited to submit a proposal for this year’s Sakai Virtual Conference! The premise of the virtual conference is simple: An Online, Sakai Teaching and Learning focused conference to connect with colleagues across the globe, share stories and best practices, and envision how you might use Sakai in the future. You can enjoy interaction with your peers in the Sakai community, all without leaving home!

We are actively seeking presenters who are knowledgeable about teaching with Sakai. You don’t need to be a technical expert to share your experiences!

The conference committee has planned the following session types:

  • Pre-conference workshop - Do you have a how-to or hands on workshop you'd like to offer? Sign up to do a 50 minute pre-conference session.

  • Lightning Talk - Lightning talks are 5 minute presentations which will be combined into an exciting and fast-paced conference session.

  • Presentation - Share your Sakai best practices with the community in a 35 min presentation session.

  • Birds of a Feather Discussion - Lead an informal/unstructured online discussion about a topic of your choice in a 35 minute interactive discussion session.

  • The Sakaiger Den - This 3 minute lightning round style session gives you the opportunity to pitch an enhancement idea and compete for available funding to make your vision a reality.

If you would like feedback on a proposal idea prior to submission, please contact the SVC conference planning committee .
