The Innovation Education Colorado Board of Directors is excited to announce the Call for Proposals for the 2018 InnEdCO Conference! We are taking everything we learned at last year’s conference and making this year’s session proposal and review process even better.

We will be leveraging Google Classroom this year in order to create a community of facilitators and a meaningful feedback process on session proposals.

Here is how to begin:

  • Step 1: Go to
  • Step 2: Login with an account (you can try your school/district’s G Suite for Education account, but it is guaranteed to work with a public account).
  • Step 3: Join the “2018 InnEdCO Session Proposals and Presenter Community” class with the following code: ausrcd4
  • Step 4: Use the assignments in the class in order to “turn in” your session proposals.

While this entire process is being handled inside of Google Classroom this year, we don’t want to leave anyone out. If you do not have a Google Account, you can create one here. If you need help with how to use Google Classroom, here is the help center.

The process for session proposals is laid out in our Google Classroom community. Here is a brief overview:

Phase 1: Proposals and Feedback (November 10 – December 18)

  • Prepare & share your session proposal.
  • Receive feedback and finalize proposal by December 18 (THIS DATE IS UPDATED).

Phase 2: Rating and Final Decisions (December 18 – December 22)

  • Each proposal will be reviewed by at minimum 3 people with a rubric that is viewable in Google Classroom.
  • 2018 Conference Selection Committee will make recommendations for proposal acceptance (Please contact f you would like to be a part of this selection committee–you will not rate your own proposal)

Phase 3: Acceptance Letters and Program Scheduling (December 23 – January 13)

  • Sessions that have been selected will receive acceptance letters with the time & location of the session (we will attempt to accommodate specific needs for sessions, but we will not be able to honor all requests).

The session proposal window for the 2018 Conference has closed.

Please let us know if you have any questions about this process by either posting into the Google Classroom community or by sending an email to We look forward to reading your proposal and engaging in conversation about innovative education as we prepare for InnEdCO 2018.
