EDspaces 2020: Call for Presentations

The Education Market Association (EDmarket) is seeking presentation proposals for the next EDspaces, taking place in Charlotte, North Carolina on November 11-13, 2020. Every year EDspaces features sessions on emerging trends and innovative concepts for learning environments.  

Thought leaders, industry professionals and education leaders are invited to submit a proposal focused on the needs of educational facility professionals. Presentations share proven practices and evidence-based research shaping the educational environment.

The EDspaces Education Committee is curating sessions in the following program areas:

  • Community Engagement;
  • Design/Project Management;
  • Environment/Health/ Sustainability;
  • Facility Operations/Best Practices;
  • Funding/Equity;
  • Pedagogy/Student Outcomes;
  • Post Occupancy/Research; and
  • Technology & Infrastructure.

“The EDspaces education program facilitates the foundation for engaging conversations happening during all aspects of the event,” Jim McGarry, EDmarket President/ CEO, said in a press release. “We welcome creative thinkers to share their unique perspectives and experiences about integrating instructional technology, space and pedagogical needs to improve student outcomes.”

The deadline to submit a proposal is March 10, 2020. There is no submission fee and speakers chosen to present at the conference will be given a special discounted rate to attend.

The education committee is looking for presentations that present “a balance between practical information and forward-thinking concepts, with an emphasis on experience gained from actual projects.”
