DEADLINE FOR RECEIPT: FEBRUARY 28, 2021
The Florida Fund for Minority Teachers, Inc. will be hosting the Twenty-First Annual Teacher Recruitment and Professional Development Symposium on March 20, 2021. The theme for this year’s symposium is “Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop: Embracing Change in the Educational Landscape.”
The symposium participants will consist of scholars (scholarship recipients who are currently enrolled in teacher education programs throughout the state of Florida).
The workshops designed for scholars will provide professional development sessions for those students who currently receive the Minority Teacher Education Scholarship at all of our 36+ participating institutions. Currently, FFMT has over 300 scholars and thus seeks to host several concurrent sessions to accommodate manageable sessions. Former sessions have included “Teachers as Leaders”, “The Role of the School Psychologist,” and “Teaching Mathematics through Problem Solving.” FFMT is especially interested in sessions that are tied to the theme and provide a realistic application of principles and theory.
Scholars, primary contacts, state college contacts, district recruiters, college and university faculty, teachers, and principals are encouraged to submit a proposal to address our scholars. FFMT seeks diversity in the perspectives and professions of its presenters.
Please consider a variety of formats for your presentation. The workshops are one hour and 15 minutes in length. Interactive sessions engage the audience. We suggest considering the following as alternatives to the standard lecture presentation:
