Canadian Signal Boost: NEADS’ 2010 Conference Call for Speakers

[National Educational Association of Disabled Students]

NEADS’ 2010 National Conference “Learning Today – Leading Tomorrow” invites expressions of interest to speak at this conference to be held November 12-14, 2010 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The event provides the only Canadian opportunity of its kind to share and exchange best practices and expertise on education, accessibility, and employment for post-secondary students and graduates with disabilities.

A wide variety of submissions are encouraged in the topic areas outlined below. The list is suggestive of the types of submissions for consideration, but by no means restrictive to these specific areas. Reviewers will be looking for proposals in the general domains of education, employment, accessibility, and disability issues.

Session presentations are 15 to 20 minutes in length and are scheduled as part of workshops on Saturday, November 13 and Sunday, November 14. By submitting, speakers agree that their presentation may be scheduled at any time, on any of these days, at the discretion of the conference planning committee.

Submissions are due by Friday, June 4, 2010
