Breakout SessionWhy Present?
If selected, your presentation could guide a room full of educators to transform their schools through your practices. Learn from your attendees as well as teach them. Have a discussion on topics related to character.

What Kind of Presentation?
We’re looking for interactive sessions to get our attendees engaged in the conversation and learn by doing rather than a strictly lecture-type format. Our attendees have their own expertise that they bring to the table, and ideally at the Forum, we all bring those various viewpoints together for a more in-depth discussion.

Breakout sessions are throughout the day on Friday Oct. 5 and Saturday Oct. 6 at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park in Washington, DC.

Previous National Forum featured speakers have included:

Hal Urban
Richard Weissbourd
Clifton Taulbert
Byron Garrett
Rodney Walker
Amit Dodani
Houston Kraft

If you are interested in presenting at the 2018 National Forum on Character, please submit your proposal by March 1, 2018.
