Getting Started on Your Session Proposal

Melissa at the PodiumWe want you to submit a proposal for a session at this year’s conference.

#PSEWEB is all about learning from each other. Every year, delegates volunteer to stand up and present a project, problem, idea, or issue that’s important to them.

We think you have something to say. But the blank submission form stares back at you. What can you offer to discuss or demonstrate? What will other people be interested in hearing about?

Here are a few ideas to ponder, to get you started:

  • What work did you do this year that you’re most proud of? What issue are you tackling right now that you’re excited about? If you’re jazzed about it, chances are your passion will show, and other people will be jazzed, too.
  • What didn’t go so well this year? What problem are you facing that keeps challenging you no matter what you throw at it? Define the problem, explain the results you’ve got so far, and invite discussion and feedback from your fellow delegates.
  • What’s your super power? What’s the thing you’re really good at doing? Run a crash course in your special skill and help us be super at it, too.

Remember: No one expects you to be perfect. You may not have all the answers. You may not be a “guru” or “ninja” or “viking.” That’s not what matters. What matters is that we share and learn with each other.

Now go show that blank submission form on the call for speakers page who’s boss. (You are.) And if you have any questions, let us know in the comments.
