SEAHO FreeForm Programs
Share |


Are you looking for additional opportunities for professional development?  We all would like those free, educational, and developmental opportunities to be more plentiful, so in conjunction with #SEAHOyearround, the Program Committee would like to announce our newly expanded initiative: Freeform Sessions!

What?: SEAHO Freeform Sessions

Wait!  What are Freeform Sessions?: Freeform sessions are intentional professional development opportunities offered by the Program Committee within SEAHO to meet the needs of the delegates throughout the year and at the annual conference.  Opportunities outside of the conference will mostly be in form of a conference call or webinar, but can also take shape via social media forums for open discussion.

 *** Special Kick-off Session***

Didn’t get to dial in for our first FreeForm session?  Well, you are in luck!  This video was recorded during our interactive FreeForm session that shares details about how to submit a proposal, what makes a good program submission, describes what formats are available and much more!  It shows you how to access the new submission process using screenshots and what the Program Committee is looking for in a program proposal.

Join your SEAHO family for the next Free Form Series webinar session on Wednesday, September 20, 2017 at 1:00 pm (Eastern Standard Time). Our Experts On Call will be Gabriel Solomon (of Florida State University) and Demarcus Merritt (of University of North Carolina Greensboro) as they discuss the topic “The Art of Article to Top Notch Proposal.” Join us as the duo will share their tactics to how they tag teamed to convert their SEAHO Report published article entitled “Diversity Self-Care Check Up: You’re Not Alone” into a presentation; which was selected as the 2017 SEAHO’s Best Program and chosen to represent the SEAHO region on the international level at ACUHO-I’s Annual Composition Exposition this past summer!
