Making Connections 2022: Call for Proposals – Submit a Proposal by Sept. 26

Making Connections 2022

Our annual Making Connections professional learning event will be held Monday, November 7. Given the wide range of innovative practices and effective strategies implemented by educators and staff in Albemarle County, our programming this year will be a combination of workshops facilitated by visiting educators as well as ACPS teachers and administrators.

We are excited to expand this year’s Making Connections conference by including opportunities for support staff to participate in professional learning! We will host professional learning sessions for instructional staff at Monticello High School, while professional learning opportunities for support staff will be offered at Journey Middle School. More information regarding the logistics of the conference will be forthcoming.

Call for Proposals

Any instructional or support staff member who is interested in presenting at Making Connections must submit a session proposal by September 26. We will offer one-hour, two-hour, and three-hour sessions. Possible session formats could include:

  • Workshop: presentation followed by time for participants to build or develop resources for use with students
  • Presentation: formal presentation followed by time for discussion or reflection with participants
  • Seminar: facilitator holds a session around a topic or issue of shared interest and facilitates a group discussion and exploration of the topic with colleagues

Making Connections is an exciting time to learn from and with each other! By highlighting our own practices, we strengthen our professional network within the division and “make connections” that we can build on over time. The 2022 Making Connections program and session registration will be released in early October.
