Request for Presentations and Posters

You are invited to share your scholarship and best practices at the 2016 Global Learning in Agriculture Conference.


You are invited to share your scholarship and best practices at the 2016 Global Learning in Agriculture Conference (#GLAG16). The mission of the Global Learning Conference in Agriculture is to create space for innovation and collaboration in developing global learning opportunities throughout the K-20 education continuum.   The 2016 conference theme is “Learning Locally: Growing Globally”.  

Core values of the conference include:
1) Purposeful, meaningful global learning can occur on and off campus.
2) There should be coordination from all levels of agricultural education to ensure maximum student growth on the global competency continuum. We look to enhance partnerships between secondary and post-secondary agricultural education efforts.

Submission deadline

5:00 PM, November 11, 2015

EXTENDED - December 1, 2015


Participants have two options for dissemination of their innovation and research: Posters or Presentations. You may select both and allow the conference organizing committee to find the most appropriate outlet for your participation.

The poster session will be conducted asynchronously using a technology platform of VoiceThread. (Note: Technical assistance will be provided to all who request it to access this free platform). Selected participants will be asked to provide their “digital poster” and accompanying video/audio recording segments explaining the poster by December. Each Poster will have it’s own link that conference attendees can visit and leave voice or text comments. Presenters are encouraged to respond during the poster session times

Presentations will occur synchronously during the conference sessions using the technology platform of AdobeConnect. (Note: Each selected participant will be provided an assigned technology mentor to assist with this platform). Presenters will have 15 minutes to share their research and/or best practices in global learning. A question and answer period between presenters and attendees will be moderated upon completion of all presentation in the session.


Abstracts are asked to fall within one of the two topic areas:

Global Experiences - How can international  immersion experiences facilitate student understanding of the global agricultural system?

Global Learning - How can instructors facilitate global learning on campuses and in classrooms without “leaving home”?


The asynchronous poster session will go live on January 2nd (Note: All posters can be pre-prepared/loaded to go live at this time). Posters will be “disconnected” on January 15th. This will allow attendees the week prior and the week following the conference to see all posters.

Presentations will occur during the Global Learning in Agriculture Conference on Friday, January 8th, 1pm-5pm.


Anyone passionate about global engagement in agriculture is encouraged to submit. All levels of educators are welcome (secondary and postsecondary). This is a non-discipline specific, unbiased sharing of scholarship of research and creative accomplishment and scholarship of teaching and learning.

All submission will be reviewed by the conference coordination team. Notification of acceptance will be made by November 18th.
