Call for Presentations

Be part of the excitement at AMLE50!

A hallmark of the AMLE Annual Conference is the wealth of knowledge-sharing that takes place through attendee presentations. Apply to present at AMLE50 to share what’s working in your classroom or school!

First-time and experienced presenters are encouraged to apply. We’re looking for sessions that showcase the 5 essential attributes of middle grades schools (Responsive, Challenging, Empowering, Equitable, Engaging), and that:

  • Think outside the box and demonstrate creativity
  • Reflect relevant middle grades best practice
  • Share examples that can be replicated by fellow attendees
  • Offer diverse viewpoints to broaden the perspective and practice of all

Presentation Types

AMLE50 is designed with our attendees’ unique learning styles in mind. Prospective presenters can select from three session formats when responding to the call for presentations:

  • Panel Session: Presenters propose a moderator, and 2 or more panelists to discuss a topic aligned with an AMLE Special Strand. AMLE will work collaboratively with the proposers to ensure alignment.
  • Concurrent Sessions: One-hour sessions that dig into a particular topic and are designed to be interactive and full of practical take-aways you can implement in your school and classroom. Note: Concurrent Sessions slots are extremely limited.
  • Speed Learning Sessions: A hallmark of the AMLE conference, speed learning allows attendees to explore a wide range of topics while engaging with presenters in a small group format. Presenters offer a 15-minute presentation three times in succession as attendees move about the room between sessions.
  • Snapshot Posters: A visual poster that highlights an impactful practice in your classroom or school (for example, this might be a classroom management strategy, a method of promoting positive culture in your school, a creative exploratory program, etc.). Grand prizes will be awarded for the most popular Posters.

All presenters, including panelists and Snapshot Poster presenters must register to attend the conference. AMLE offers a steeply discounted registration rate for accepted presenters.

Why present at #AMLE22?
  • You get the chance to share your school and classroom successes with an international audience
  • Recognition on the #AMLE22 website
  • Exclusive #AMLE22 Presenter digital badge to include on your resume and share via social media
  • Access to presenter training sessions
  • Significantly reduced registration rate

Why do we require presenter registration? A hallmark of AMLE annual conferences is our large cadre of attendee, practitioner presenters – more than 300, in fact! While we wish we could make the #AMLE22 experience free to all, there is a substantial cost per attendee to hosting the event and as a non-profit organization it is important that we make the event sustainable so that we can continue to provide top-notch professional development to middle level educators around the world.
