2018 OD Network Annual Conference - OD Emergence: Create the Possibility...
Instructions

This form will save incomplete applications for 30 days, provided you are signed in with your OD Network profile. Log in before beginning your application. If you do not have a profile, you can join OD Network, or set up a non-member profile.

You can submit multiple applications, but must complete one before beginning a second application.

It is important that you provide ALL of the required information requested on the online form. This information will be published on the OD Network website and printed program if the session is selected. Your email and phone number are for internal use only. Enter the following speaker information EXACTLY as you would like it to appear in any session materials, should your session be accepted. Information will be listed as "Name, Designation, Title, Organization, Country".

Use the links at the end of each page to navigate the form. The numbered links at the top allow you to visit previous pages. Note that you must use the "Next" button at the bottom of each page to move through the form, even if you do not have additional speaker information for pages 2 and 3. The system will not allow you to submit the form until all seven page links are flagged as "Valid" and highlighted in green. If any pages are flagged as "Missing or invalid required information," revisit those pages and make any required updates before submitting the form.

IMPORTANT: Do NOT use your browsers "back" button to go to a previous page of the form. Doing so may result in unsaved information being lost.

You can download a complete list of questions and use it as a guideline to complete your proposal before submitting it:

As you look at the practice and opportunities for impact of OD today, in general, and within your own practice, in particular:

  1. What trends, challenges, and opportunities do you see “emerging” on the horizon that will call upon the uniqueness of our profession?; and
  2. What would you like to share with your OD colleagues at ODN 2018, in the way of skills, perspectives, tools, and experiences, that would add substance to the actualization of those emerging trends, challenges, opportunities...that would be instrumental in “advancing the science, practice, and impact of OD”...as you see it emerging?

The 2018 Annual Conference Education and Content leads are looking for dynamic and engaging facilitators who not only bring their skills and experiences to the conference, but bring learnings to share with participants that are experiential, relatable, and transferable. Facilitators will host sessions on topics that reflect aspects of the Global OD Practice Framework™, facilitate conversations and dialogue that deepen understanding of OD principles and practices and engage participants with emerging perspectives in our field.

We encourage all presenters to find innovative ways of sharing their experiences, knowledge, research, and cases in a way that is culturally sensitive and acknowledges the global nature of the conference and attendees. The committee highly recommends making these presentations as experiential and engaging as possible for the learner. Attendees consistently rate interactive sessions higher than those that are not, and the committee will be looking to select such sessions for the program.

Please refer to the format descriptions to guide your content development, while considering that experiential, interactive formats will be favored above standard presentations. We look forward to reviewing your submission!

How to Submit

  • Proposals must be submitted through the appropriate online form.
