Your poster may represent scholarship in community engagement, service learning, teaching practices, research proposal, or completed research results.

You may use the following prompts to help guide your Poster Presentation.

  • What should we leave behind as we re-engage in person
  • What pandemic-era change has allowed us to see old problems through a new lens and envision previously unimagined solutions?
  • How do we connect across discipline, sector, institution, or culture?
  • How do you ignite your own creativity? How have the events of the last few years changed your relationship with your creative process?
  • How do you support your students as they reconnect after time apart? What is something new that you tried with your students that sparked their creativity and got them excited about dance?
  • What advice would you give to students or emerging dance educators as they find their passion and paths in the field
  • How do we identify and support varied needs to ensure that all students and colleagues can access what they need to thrive in our programs and institutions?
  • How do we respectfully bring our differing cultural backgrounds together to help each individual student reach their full potential?
  • How do we use dance education to expand our ideas of the world and grow our connection to the other people in it?

Selected authors were notified around 8/1/22. All accepted presenters and co-presenters will need to be members of NDEO and registered for the conference by 9/1/22.
