2015 CALIFORNIA SCIENCE EDUCATION CONFERENCE

OCTOBER 2-4, 2015 • SACRAMENTO, CA

SHORT COURSE PROPOSALS

Thank you to those who submitted proposals to present a Short Course at the 2015 California Science Education Conference. The proposal period for Short Courses is now closed and we are no longer accepting Short Course proposals.

Presenter Reimbursement: Short course lead presenters will be reimbursed for materials used during their session based on the estimated cost indicated on the short course proposal form. Lead presenters will be required to submit original receipts and an itemized list of materials used. A reimbursement form and instructions will be included in the presenter registration packet.

Discounted Presenter Registration: Lead presenters who are current members of CSTA will receive a fifty percent discount on conference registration, allowing full access to over 200 workshops and events over the course of the conference. Registration is compulsory for all short course presenters. Co-presenters are not eligible for registration discounts.

Review of Proposals: All short course proposals will be reviewed by two members of the 2015 Conference Committee. The name of the proposal submitter is not viewable by the reviewer. For a copy of the rubric that will be used to review the proposals, please visit www.cascience.org/csta/pdf/rubric.pdf.

Proposal Selection: CSTA seeks to offer a variety and balance of programming across grade levels and subject matters. Thus, the selection of short courses is based not only on their review score, but also on the number of short courses needed to offer this diverse programming. Those submitting proposals will be notified by mail and/or e-mail of the status of their proposal in late March, 2015.
