ATTENTION! University of Georgia College of Education is Calling for Proposals by November 13th!

Check the announcement below for information about two conferences being put on by the University of Georgia College of Education.

Have you marked your calendar? The College of Education at the University of Georgia is hosting two conferences that you do not want to miss! 

Evidence-Based School Counseling Conference: February 28th-29th

We are pleased to announce the Fourth Annual National Evidence-Based School Counseling Conference (EBSCC) February 28th-29th, 2016 at the Georgia Center in Athens, GA. The most impactful presentations came from those working on the front lines of our profession. We hope you will consider submitting a proposal for the 2016 conference.

The Evidence-Based School Counseling Conference provides school counselors with critical information about successful practice, evaluation, and relevant research to create dynamic and powerful school counseling programs. The conference uses a unique format to incorporate both peer-reviewed research presentations and small group consultation with leaders in the field.

Innovations in School Counselor Preparations-February 29th-March 1st

The Innovations in School Counselor Preparation Conference allows counselor educators and practicing school counselors from across the country to consider the significant issues in the preparation of the next generation of school counselors. Examine course design and program development to prepare counselors who are committed to principles of systemic change and social justice, and who accept responsibility for enhancing academic success for all students.

Content Sessions

Content Session Proposals for the Innovations in School Counselor Preparation Conference are for 50-minute content sessions focused on new strategies for preparing school counselors, and should be grounded in principles of social justice and educational equity. Successful proposals will also be aligned with one or more of the following conference threads:
  • Innovations in pedagogy, course design, or program development
  • Selection and recruitment of graduate students
  • Induction and professional development
  • College and career readiness
  • School-based mental health and social/emotional learning
  • Partnerships
  • Field experiences and supervision
  • Research 
Presenters will be invited to present a 2-3 page abstract of the presentation to be included in an electronic publication of the conference proceedings. Additionally, presenters for accepted proposals related to research or practice on college access will be invited to submit a proposal for a peer-reviewed article for a special edition of the College Access Journal co-edited by Dr. Laura Owen and Dr. Cheryl Holcomb-McCoy.

Poster Sessions

Proposals for poster presentations will be accepted for one of two categories:
1) Model school counselor preparation programs
2) Graduate student poster sessions

Model School Counselor Preparation Programs are designed to highlight innovative school counselor preparation programs across the country, including M.Ed, Ed.S, Ed.D., and Ph.D. programs. These presentations should include each of the following components:
  • Mission
  • Selection  and recruitment
  • Curriculum and course sequence
  • Partnerships
  • Field experiences and supervision
  • Innovations or unique program features
  • Support for effectiveness of program (outcome data, graduate student comments, etc.)
Graduate Student Poster Presentations are designed to provide graduate students with opportunities to 1) present their original research related to school counseling or school counselor preparation, or 2) reflect on unique experiences/contributions related to graduate preparation.

The Call for Proposal deadline is November 13, 2015:

We also encourage graduate students to submit a poster presentation for the conference:

Early registration is the most cost-effective way of attending the conference. All registration information is contained on the EBSCC website.
whether you will attend or be unable to attend this year please consider disseminating the registration and Call for Proposals out to your own network. The EBSCC is truly a grassroots effort and the growth over the previous three years has come from word-of-mouth as we have no office and no staff!
