The IDEO Conference offers us a chance to share great practices and move forward the field of dance education in Idaho. IDEO welcomes dance educators from across the state of Idaho. We will strategize and share ways to advocate for, analyze, and advance dance education in our schools, communities, and state. We invite you to join us in the state’s capital and share your dance talents, and your vision for the future of dance education.
What are your best stories of student and personal growth through dance education: both data-driven and heartfelt? How have you worked to start, save, or improve a local dance program? How do you define successful learning in dance? How do your students take ownership of their own learning in, about, and through dance? How do you use dance for community building, conflict prevention, and student empowerment? What would you like to share with policymakers about the value added of dance in your communities? How can we come together and share these stories in a way that improves learning in, about, and through dance?
Conference sessions will include: • Paper Presentations – 20 minutes presentation with 10 minutes for Q&A. • Movement Sessions – 50 minutes with 10 minutes for Q&A. Participation or observation of movement work. Clear space with a few chairs around the perimeter. CD/iPod hookup only; no LCDs. • Experiential Workshops – 50 minutes with 10 minutes for Q&A.

You MUST also decide if you want your proposal to be a) BLIND PEER REVIEWED; b) NON-BLIND PEER REVIEWED. BLIND PEER REVIEWED PROPOSALS can be Research or In-Practice. NON-BLIND PEER REVIEWED PROPOSALS can be In-Practice or Research Research proposals involve a question of inquiry that focuses on the results of an actual investigation, a concern within a framework of thought or of investigations involving a research methodology. Proposals should demonstrate originality of thought and the value of the research in relation to the field of dance and dance education. Presentations can be in the form of papers, panels or movement workshops. In all forms, presenters are encouraged to involve the conference theme in their inquiry. In-practice proposals demonstrate research in application or a practical approach that supports the everyday experiences of the dance educator. Proposals can range from anecdotal evidence to examples of lesson plans. Presentations can be in the form of papers, panels or movement workshops. In all forms, presenters are encouraged to involve the conference theme in their inquiry. You may submit your proposal for a paper presentation, movement, workshop, or panel in either avenue.
