Welcome to Omaha! Enjoy the ACEDHH conference
Association of College Educators—Deaf and Hard of Hearing International Conference
Connect, Collaborate, Commit:
Preparing for Deaf Education in the 21st Century
Embassy Suites Downtown in Omaha, NE
Critical thinking, social skills, creativity, problem solving, metacognition, collaboration, communication, and global citizenship are among some of the identified critical skills required to fully engage in the 21st Century. These skills not only provide a framework for successful learning in the classroom, but also ensure that deaf and hard of hearing students can thrive in a technological world in which change is constant and learning never stops.
We encourage the submission of proposals that put the spotlight on the numerous diverse professionals in the field of DHH education. Additional points will be awarded for proposals that incorporate the conference theme such as:
1. Connecting research to practice: training pre-service professionals, honing PK-12 DHH students’ 21st century skills.
2. Collaborating with varied qualified professionals who support DHH students’ success including programs and families.
3. Committing to diversity, dedication, inclusive practices, and nurturing environments in all areas of education to enhance positive outcomes.
Note: Even if you submitted a proposal last for 2021 under the same theme, please resubmit it.
Proposals will be reviewed by the Program Committee in a blind review format.
Please let the President-Elect Dave Smith know if you are interested in being a reviewer.
