The short bios provided for each presenter will be used on the Studio website.

Include Twitter handles for presenters if you have them.

Please Include:



While participants will be provided with many details on the content of your session through your description, your title will be the first piece of information they will use to decide whether they will attend your session (or not attend). Make it unique, if you can.



The description that you submit here will be used in the printed and online Studio materials. Please keep this in mind while developing your summary.  It should help our review team make an informed decision about your session, but most importantly, it should provide a good description to participants of what your session will cover.



It’s important for the sessions to reflect specific focus areas while supporting educators’ growth in understanding and implementing competency-based education and personalized learning.  

Conference Focus Areas

  • Introduction to CBL

  • K-12 CBL Design

  • Personalization & Equity

  • Assessment, Grading, and Reporting

  • Performance Assessments

  • Professional Learning Communities

  • Instructional Strategies

  • Change Management



We will ask each presenter to identify the research they have used to inform their work.  It is very important to EDS that the work being shared is connected to research.



What data can you share to show that what you are doing within your school/classroom is having a positive impact?



This field helps the reviewing committee understand the purpose and intended outcomes of your session and may be shared with attendees.



Based on participant feedback in the past, we encourage all presenters to utilize an interactive approach. Our Studio is about competency-based and personalized learning, so we will attempt to meet each learner where they are and provide the necessary support for them to move forward, thereby modeling a competency-based and personalized approach.



We are striving to provide support for educators at all levels of implementation (Initiating, Developing, and Performing).  You will be asked to identify the depth of content/implementation level, of your session’s focus.



Indicate the role of the attendee that will get the most out of your session.
