CÆA 2020 FALL CONFERENCE
This fall, due to the uncertainty surrounding the pandemic, and in the interest of keeping everyone safe, we have planned a series of virtual conferences to help our members plan for instruction. We have been asked to rethink how we deliver art education, redesign our units for distance learning and rediscover creativity in all its forms.
Due to the virtual format, proposals will be handled in a different way.
Please read through this document carefully before creating your proposal.
We are planning 3 events:
1. August 20, 2020 from 12 noon to 4 pm, focus on technology including learning management systems (lms),
flipgrid, artsonia, etc.

3. January 23, 2021 from 10am to 2pm, virtual conference.

Proposals are now being accepted for all three of the virtual conferences.
Applications Due July 13 - July 31st. Applicants will be notified by August 5th.We invite members to share their knowledge, research and ideas.
Video or Presentation links for accepted proposals MUST be emailed to the committee
NO LATER THAN
August 14th for the August 21st mini-conference
September 5th for the subsequent conferences.
Single presenters, or co-presenters; choose from the following types of sessions:
20-minute pre-recorded video or slide presentation/demo, with 25 minutes for Q&A
30-minute pre-recorded video or slide presentation/demo, with 15 minutes for Q&A
45-minute moderated discussion/collaborative sharing session (no demonstrations)
if you do not want to present a full session, but feel that you have a unit that worked well,
you can submit a 5 to 15-minute pre-recorded video or slide presentation
in any of the following formats:
Teaching tips and tricks (for digital or traditional formats)
Short demonstrations - a condensed version of a lesson (accompanying lesson plan/resources handouts)
Keep these things in mind
Please be sure to only include original content in any session presentations - no third-party material will be allowed.
No materials will be delivered to participants, so if you are doing a hands on lesson you may want to use materials commonly found around the house, or include a materials list so participants can either prepare in advance or obtain the materials after.
Handouts and other resources must be included so attendees can access them.
Full sessions will be recorded and the links will be uploaded for paid conference attendees to view at a later date.
Presentations need to be high quality to reflect our professionalism. Your pre-recorded videos should be clean and the audio clear and understandable. We will have some guidelines to help you prepare and there is a rubric at the bottom of this document. Please note that some videos may need to be revised based on committee feedback. We appreciate your understanding and flexibility.
All proposals will be blind peer reviewed by the conference committee and scored based on the following criteria (1 = low, 5 = high). Please refer to the California Art Education Association proposal rubric to assess your submission.
Title: Does the title clearly reflect the content of the proposal?
Clarity: Is the proposal clearly written in 3rd person point of view? Does the proposal clearly describe the session?
Content: Is the content/topic of the proposal clear? Will the presentation include a demonstration of a technique, lesson or strategy, or is it focused on presenting research? Will the content be presented in a video or slideshow format?
Relevance: Is the proposal reflective of 21st century art education? (i.e. connections to the new NCAS Standards, contemporary artistic practice, online teaching and learning, digital or visual literacy, collaboration, community engagement, service learning, etc.)
Outcomes/Goals: Does the proposal clearly state the intended outcomes/goals indicating how participants will be able to use the information from the session? How will participants be engaged if the session format allows for live discussion?
