Ideas Come From Curiosity
“We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity leads us down new paths.” – Walt Disney

 
The 2020 ACHE South Conference Planning Committee is actively seeking curious adult education professionals who have something to say to our community.  We invite members and friends of the Association to submit proposals for conference sessions that will strengthen and nurture our partnerships and relationships in higher education.  How are you “moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things” in the following areas?
  • Program Delivery – Credit and Non-Credit:  Consider sharing about your program: what works/ doesn’t work?  Talk about how your ideas become reality.  What are you doing to impact adult learners?  As Walt Disney once said, “The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.”
  • Administration / Marketing: “You can design and create, and build the most wonderful place in the world. But it takes people to make the dream a reality.” – Walt Disney Consider a presentation that highlights how your dream is becoming reality.
  • Technology / Innovation: We need to hear more about how adult learning is being enhanced and challenged in a time of constant change.  As Walt Disney once said, “It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.”

If you are wondering IF you should submit a proposal, remember these words of Walt Disney: “If you can dream it, you can do it.  Always remember that this whole thing was started by a mouse.”
 
Dream up what you could propose, and then do it!
