We invite proposals for workshops for the 2018 NAEOP Conference to be either theory or practical application based. Workshops are sessions intended to convey specific knowledge or skills. These sessions are not appropriate for the presentation of formal research talks and do not include presentation abstracts. Workshops are more interactive and informal than formal paper sessions, and they can involve extended discussion as well as hands-on training. Workshops may involve one or several leaders/presenters. A strong workshop proposal will make clear what knowledge, skills, tools, or insights participants might expect to gain from the session.
2018 Strand Descriptions
The conference planning committee has identified the following major “strands” for the 2018 NAEOP Conference as they relate to leadership in college access and opportunity.
The new/aspiring leaders strand aims to equip TRIO program professionals with the leadership skills, qualities, strategies, and techniques to become effective agents of change. This strand also provides individuals with a foundational understanding of leadership skills and competencies essential for individual and organizational success. Workshop facilitators will challenge participants to increase the capacity of their current skills and abilities.
Management and Supervisory Skills
The management and supervisory skills strand will include a broad spectrum of skills for managing people more effectively. This strand benefits TRIO professionals who supervise staff at all levels from student workers to program planning. Topics may include performance management, motivation, team development, interpersonal and communication skills.
The innovative leadership strand teaches participants to lead creativity in idea generation and problem solving. Participants in this strand will leave with individual skills necessary to create powerful results within their TRIO program.
