NOVEMBER 4–6, 2019
The Fusion program will showcase innovative solutions from educators from across the country—and could include yours! We want to hear why something you’ve tried worked. This is your opportunity to share research-informed or evidence-based best practices that have improved teaching and learning in your
school, district or educational community.
Your presentation should be innovative, thought-provoking and engaging—
we want you to dazzle and inspire the Fusion attendees!
What works? We want to learn from you!
10-Minute Lightning Round Talk:
1-Hour Interactive Workshop:
There are two ways to showcase your work at Fusion:
Fusion Learning Tracks: Which best fits your work?
social-emotional learning, family engagement, early learning, brain science, etc.
personalized learning implementation, data privacy, artificial intelligence, AR/VR, digital curriculum tools, etc.
career technical education, microcredentials, MOOCs, workforce development, etc.
innovations in equity models, restorative justice practices & models, the digital divide, school wrap-around models, maker-spaces, etc.
Your proposal will be evaluated by a team of experts. Selected proposals will ensure that Fusion offers a comprehensive,
non-promotional and diverse range of exemplars of what’s working in education today.
At EdSurge Fusion, we strive to represent a diverse range of institutions, organizations, presenters and geographic location.

All submissions are due by June 1, 2019
Registration: All accepted presenters will receive a discounted ticket price of $300 (full-price ticket is $649 for educators). You must register for the conference by July 31st and will be responsible for securing and paying for your travel and lodging. Please plan and budget accordingly before submitting your proposal. (EdSurge Fusion will not be able to cover any additional costs such as travel and lodging expenses or other presentation materials.) Student presenters (K-12, college and graduate) and one chaperone, if needed, will receive a complimentary registration.
Sharing resources: Presenters will be asked to participate in a content review call to share an overview of their talk or workshop at least one month prior to Fusion and to upload related resources at least three weeks prior to their presentation. (See bottom of submission forms for specific dates and expectations.) These resources and your answers to the submission questions will provide support for the presentation and also become a part of the Fusion 2019 Playbook (a workbook for attendees). If your proposal is selected, you will be provided with instructions for uploading your presentation materials.
