What to include in your proposal:

Educational Session proposals should include specific participant learning outcomes and be grounded in both research and theoretical frameworks, if applicable. Educational Session must benefit members by meeting one or more of NODA’s learning outcomes for conferences. They are:

  • Increase knowledge regarding trends and best practices related to the field of orientation, transition, and retention.
  • Increase understanding of current research in the field of orientation, transition and retention.
  • Benchmark programs/services with peer institutions
  • Increase formal and informal network with peers engaged in the field of orientation, transition and retention.
  • Enhance student leadership skills related to orientation, transition, and retention programs through participation in developmental learning experiences

Additionally, proposals must address how the information presented can be adapted to different types and sizes of institutions. The Conference Planning Committee is in search of sessions across the three NODA focus areas: orientation, transition, and retention. All presenters at NODA conferences must be registered for the conference in order to present.
